Blue Moon Art Project Contest

The Blue Moon Art Project contest is back ahead of the Peter Anderson Arts and Crafts Festival.

Now is your time to enter for a chance to win $2,000 and more. As a part of the contest, applicants across the state, ages 21 and older, are encouraged to submit a painting showing their interpretation of Blue Moon. This year’s theme is ‘Where do you Blue Moon?’

Each piece that’s entered is judged by a jury committee. The winner’s painting will be chosen as the symbol for Blue Moon’s marketing surrounding the following year’s Peter Anderson Arts and Crafts Festival.

Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cynthia Sutton tells News 25 the Blue Moon Art Project Contest provides Mississippi artists with a great opportunity. “It’s a really fun way to get notoriety as an artist and for your art work. It’s also a statewide event. The Peter Anderson Arts and Crafts Festival is the largest fine arts festival in the state and one of the ones in the region. So, the reach to have your artwork out there is far beyond just being here in Ocean Springs or the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”

Sutton says this year judges are looking for a more contemporary and abstract piece.

For more information on submissions visit the Peter Anderson Festival website. The deadline for submission is October 15th.
