Instagram/ Photo Contest Winners Announced!

Critical Mass for the Visual Arts volunteers selected the two winners of the Seed the Change Photo Contest.  The prize for Original Drawing goes to   “Octopus” by Gabriela of Bellville, IL.  The best “Spirit of the Event” photo goes to Peter Gifford of St. Louis, MO. The winners will each be awarded momentary internet fame and a check for $250 as part of the Seed the Change Public Art Project by Jessica Witte.  We would like to thank all who participated in the contest and the public art project on June 5, 2016.

Seed the Change, the temporary 400-foot long drawing with the public in birdseed was part of opening weekend festivities for the redesigned St. Louis Riverfront at the Arch.  Several area organizations hosted related activities at the event including Center of Creative Arts, EarthDance Organic Farm School, the Missouri Botanical Gardens, and the St. Louis Arc.  Seed the Change was the inaugural Public Works Project, a $10,000 commission to create a temporary public artwork anywhere in the City of St. Louis.  Seed the Change was presented by Critical Mass for the Visual Arts, generously funded by the William E. Weiss Foundation, and hosted by Great Rivers Greenway.
