Call for Student Art at Saks Fifth Avenue

March 15, 2012

Calling ALL ARTISTS!!!!!!!!


Saks Fifth Avenue in Tysons Galleria is holding a contest for art students in celebration of our upcoming men’s store expansion. Our Contemporary Week Celebration will take place THIS March 31st and the deadline to submit entries is March 23. Students interested in participating will submit a super hero themed sketch. The image needs to be appropriate to go up in our store. This is a great opportunity to have your art work not only displayed in a prestigious institution, but it is also something students can add to their resume and portfolio. This experience is an opportunity of a life time for an aspiring artist.


We ask that the submissions be drawn on an 8.5 x 11 paper. We will select the winner by popular vote and notify him/her by March 26th. The winner will recreate their sketch on a wall in men's contemporary using a medium of their preference.


A live audience will watch the winning student put up their super hero themed design on the day of our event (March 31st) from 2-5pm, while attendees enjoy a DJ and refreshments. The winner’s art work will remain on the wall throughout the season. Participants, friends, family, and fans are welcome to attend the event. The winner will receive an outfit from our contemporary vendor, Diesel.


Submissions must be sent to:
