Community Art Competition for Yarra Valley Schools and Artists
Yarra Valley Arts & Yarra Valley Wine and Food Festival have commissioned 12 local artists to be involved with 12 local schools to artistically transform a wine barrel into something that symbolizes the Yarra Valley and these barrels will go on display at the Wine & Food Festival on the 1st & 2nd April.
Visitors to the festival will be invited to give a gold coin or two to their favourite wine barrel and funds will be distributed equally to all 12 schools. The barrel with the most donations will be awarded the people’s choice award. This artist will receive a prize of $750 and the school supporting this artist will also receive a prize of $750.
The awards to both artists and schools will be announced at the festival at 4.30pm on Sunday.
Join us for a very family friendly event, with Sunday the 2nd of April being the best day for children and their families, offering thrilling entertainment and fun activities especially for the little people. Also plenty for parents to enjoy! Food, wine & music.
