About the Competition
Each year a work of art is selected for the official Tulip Time Festival poster. In addition to the poster, the artwork is used on merchandise throughout the festival year. The HAAC administers the Art in Bloom Competition inviting artists in Ottawa, Allegan, Kent, Muskegon and Kalamazoo counties to submit artwork for the poster competition which are then reviewed by a juror.
This year’s juror will be Rich Evenhouse, co-founder of Next Marketing and Design and board member at the Holland Area Arts Council. Evenhouse will narrow the submissions to the Top 20 pieces, and the final Tulip Time Festival poster artwork will be selected from this Top 20 by representatives from both Tulip Time and the Holland Area Arts Council.
