Hart Prize LOGO-01.png

The Hart Project committee is excited to announce its second annual Hartprize Contest!  The committee will soon be accepting submissions for this year's artists.

The purpose of this Hartprize is to promote local artists, encourage community involvement, and to beautify Hart with public art installments that bring new life, authentic stories, and the arts to our growing community.  

In addition to a cash prize for the top artists, a plaque will be placed next to the art the artist participating will be promoted on our social media channels, e-newsletter and press releases.  Limited Edition prints may be sold with proceeds going to The Hart Project.


A selection committee will choose a design from the submissions received.   Artist(s) will be notified/announced, art will be displayed downtown, and the public will be invited to vote for their favorite mural for a period of 30 days.  First place will be awarded TBA, based on the results of a 30-day public vote.
