Hidden art treasure contest under way in Rockwood

-A A +A

The Arts Council of Roane County is conducting a hidden art treasure hunt contest in Rockwood, just in time for Mother’s Day.

The council designed the contest, which continues through May 10, to support both area businesses and artists.

The council has “hidden” Roane County artists’ works in the shops of some of Rockwood’s merchants and other businesses.

Each participating business is featuring a single work of art displayed with the council’s signage in each of the participating businesses.

Shoppers spotting one of these works may fill out an entry form and deposit it in the entry box provided.

At 5 p.m. May 10, the council will collect the entries and select a single grand prize winner to receive a $100 certificate good toward the purchase of one of the fine pieces of art on display, or by special arrangement, another work of a participating artist.

The winner will be notified and may pick up their prize immediately after the drawing.

The Arts Council of Roane County is a nonprofit organization established in 2012.

Its mission is to enrich the cultural lives of Roane County residents through programs and partnerships that celebrate artistic excellence, cultivate artistic opportunities and
promote educational activities.

The council serves and supports the diverse artistic organizations, individuals and venues within Roane County and in doing so, supports businesses and helps invigorate the community.
