Mirrors 4th Student Art & Digital Competition

June 4, 2020

The Mirrors Alumni & Friends Association will be partnering with the Masterworks Foundation, as they host the 4th Annual Student Art & Digital Competition, with the deadline for submissions set for Friday, June 26.

A spokesperson said, “Mirrors Alumni & Friends Association is thrilled to once again partner with the Masterworks Foundation in hosting the Mirrors 4th Annual Student Art and Digital Competition. The collaboration between Mirrors, Masterworks Foundation, and Mirrors Alumni & Friends Association has been crucial for the overwhelming success of the Art & Digital Competition.

“The theme for this year’s competition is – Home – exploring different notions of what constitutes a feeling of belonging. At the time the theme was set we had no idea how fitting it would be given our current circumstances with the arrival of Covid 19.

“The competition is open to any student enrolled at a local public or private school for the 2019/2020 school year. There may be only one entry per student. The art pieces can be no larger than 11” x 17” and the digital submissions no longer than 90 seconds.

“The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 26, 2020. Entries can be dropped off at TN Tatem School Field, Shelly Bay Beach Car Part, and Masterworks Foundation on Friday, June 26, 2020, between 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

“The exhibit will be on display at Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art from July 3 – August 8, 2020. The public will have the opportunity to cast their People’s Choice vote for their favorite submissions during this time. Winners will be notified after the exhibit has closed on August 8th and People’s Choice voting has concluded. Prize giving for the competition will take place mid-September.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Mirrors again this year, for our annual student art and digital competition”, said Mr. Tom Butterfield of the Masterworks Foundation. “Despite the challenges of the past several months, we are charging ahead with this competition in the hope that it can showcase that through the arts, we can celebrate our individuality and our community. Now, More so than ever, we need programmes like this centered on hope and optimism.”

Mr. Butterfield went on to say, “each year, the students’ artwork continues to impress me and we owe it to this next generation of children to share the value of creativity and self-expression. I hope that these young creatives will continue to flourish within the arts, and encourage their peers to do the same.”

Denise Wilson-Adams, Chairwoman of the Mirrors Alumni & Friends Association said, “We are so happy to be a part of such an exciting and rewarding event. The Art & Digital submissions have grown from year to year. We feel that our prizes are amazing. Each school has the opportunity to win cash in the Art & Digital competition categories for Primary, Middle, and High School.

“The prizes for young artists are also phenomenal. Bermuda has so many talented young artists who have the amazing ability to express themselves through art. I encourage all to visit the exhibit at the Masterworks Foundation Rick Faires Gallery. You won’t be disappointed.”
