Art League hosts design contest with cash prizes

Art League hosts design contest with cash prizes

Sunday, February 14, 2021

Although 2020 didn’t go as planned, the San Marcos Art League unveiled its first batch of Art Squared tote bags during the last art market season, designed by local artist Jo Hunter. This year, the Art League will be rolling out a new design in time for the Art Squared market season in March, and they want help from the community.

The Art League will be holding a design contest, where the winning design will be featured on the 2021 Art Squared tote bag. Instructions on how to enter are as follows:

This year's theme for Art Squared 2021 is connection. Entrants will create a design that shows your interpretation of how Art Squared, or the arts in general, connect people as a community. All artists are different, so the Art League wants to see an artist’s unique style brought into this idea.

Participants may submit designs to info@ by March 1. Entries must be a one-color design. After the deadline, there will be a public poll on the San Marcos Art League website where viewers will be able to vote for your favorite design. The top three designs will receive the following prizes: the first prize winner will receive $100 and have their design printed on our tote bags. The second prize winner will receive $75, and the third prize winner will receive $50.

The San Marcos Art League looks forward to seeing what the San Marcos art community can come up with and is expecting a large number of submissions. For design inspiration, check out the San Marcos Art League on Instagram at @smtxartleague or on the website at
