Art Tales writing contest now open

Parks, Recreation & Community Partnerships is proud to sponsor the 11th Annual Art Tales Writing Contest. This writing contest, inspired by art, is open to writers worldwide. Contestants are asked to view four selected pieces from the City’s Municipal Art Collection and compose a short story or poem (500 words or less) based on one. This year’s theme “Objects of Curious Happenstance” plays upon the whimsical and creative nature of the four selected artworks. The community is invited to view the art in person, during regular business hours, on the 2nd floor of City Hall, 501 Poli St.

Writers, in three age categories (youth, teen, and adult), will find information on how to enter, teacher lesson plans, and biographies of the artists on the Art Tales website. All entries must be submitted through email, and only one entry may be submitted per person. The deadline to submit is Wed., April 10. For more information contact Tobie Roach at 805-658-4759 or arttales@cityofventura.ca.gov.
