I couldn't resist posting this. I'd love for one of my readers to win!
ARBITRARY ART GRANT
Vital 5 Productions and Artists for a Work Free America
The spring and summer of 2009 will reveal twelve $500.00 Arbitrary Art Grants in a variety of mediums, such as music, dance, writing, fashion design, architecture, photography, painting and many more. These twelve grants will culminate at this year’s Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle in a Vital 5 Produced exhibit entitled DADA ECONOMICS.
To kick off this series of seemingly absurd grants, we are going to give $500.00 to one person who builds a sculpture inside of a steel grocery cart, created only from the store's inventory. Build it, photograph it, and email a picture to: firstname.lastname@example.org before May 15th, 2009. On May 30th, a winner will be selected, called and given $500.00 cash. There is no application or judge, and I promise the winner will be selected in a completely random manner.
This grant is open to people of all ages, of all skill levels, in all countries. All you need is a grocery store and a camera. If you don't have a digital camera or an email address, take a real picture and mail it to: Vital 5 Productions, POB 23385, Seattle, WA 98102. Only one entry will be allowed per person, and all entries will be displayed in the DADA ECONOMICS exhibit this September.
