It could depict exciting victories, heartbreaking defeats, miraculous comebacks, generations of fans supporting the team year after year or whatever interpretation the artist imagines based
Artists are invited to capture 100 seasons of the Packers through painting, drawings, prints, digital art, mixed media or collage. The deadline to submit artwork is April 9.
Three grand prize winners also will receive a $5,000 donation to the winner’s school art program and an invitation for the winner and two guests to the Annual Suite Holder Tasting in July at Lambeau Field.
Eligible artists include students in grades 6-8 or grades 9-12, or students attending a university or technical college at the time of submission, with one winner chosen from each category. The final artwork size must be 16 inches by 20 inches on canvas, paper, or other mixed media. Art pieces must weigh less than 30 pounds and be able to fit comfortably in a standard frame.
