Fall Harvest Art Contest Announced
The Rockaway Rotary Club is brightening up Beach 116th Street with a new Fall Harvest Art Contest.
The event is designed to motivate kids with artistic talent to go creative and paint the windows of the community’s shops. A letter inviting local schools to join in describe it as an opportunity “to help with the rebirth of the Beach 116th Street merchants after the storm.”
The window painting event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 20th.
Local artist, Rotary member and chairperson for the event Linda Rufo notes that a select panel of judges will review the finished works and prizes will be awarded.
First Prize will be $500; Second Prize $250 and Third Prize is $125.
Names of the winner will be announced in The Wave newspaper.
