So worth taking a moment to visit the link "Your Art Here" for window design for H&M's flagship store located at 42nd Street and 5th Avenue in New York City... Amazing artists have entered online H&M's contest (artists can no longer win the contest but can still submit their work). The deadline was october 15th.
What I love about it is that all types of original visual artwork were allowed including industrial design, drawing, architecture, photography, interior design, graffiti, crafts, illustration to name some. So free and soooo rich.
Visitors voted on their artwork of choice and the top ten vote getting artworks compete in a final round where they are reviewed by a panel of judges from H&M and art world personalities, including:
- Thierry Guetta, AKA Mr. Brainwash
- Nancy Barton, Professor of Art and Art Education at Steinhart NYU
- Daniel V, the blogger behind JazJaz
- Adele Treschow, designer and contemporary artist
The winner will definitely get a great amount of exposure in one of the most frequented stores in Manhattan, among other incentives.
I love the idea that anyone could compete. Democratic!
I wish I got one of those for my landing page :-)
Here works from Miranda Maxwell, Richard Ryan, Joaquim Sorro, Lisa Toff, Carolina Mondia (my favorite!), Armondo Williams, respectively. And the oscar goes to....
