Art & Soul of the Magic Valley Art Contest, Twin Falls, ID

The Magic Valley Arts Council’s art contest, Art & Soul of the Magic Valley, is in need of fiber artists to continue the conversation of ‘what is art?’ and “why art is important.’

Now in its 8th year, Art & Soul of the Magic Valley is the largest cash-awarding art contest in the Northwest, held in rural Twin Falls, ID. Determined by public vote, Grand Prize is awarded $15,000 and a total of $43,000 will be awarded to 35 winners. A prize of $1,000 is awarded to the Best of Show in fourteen categories.

Here is where I need your help… We have struggled to have people entry the Fiber Category and are at risk of having this category no longer be a part of the contest. I am hoping you would be willing to enter Art & Soul of the Magic Valley and/or pass this information along to some of your friends. We believe fiber arts are necessary to the overall conversation of valuing art.

Fee for Entry is $50 0r $60 if entered by January 31, 2018.
