Price Hill seeks artists, businesses to participate in window painting competition


Price Hill Will and its Arts Community Action Team (Arts CAT) are seeking artists and businesses that would like to take part in the neighborhood’s 11th annual Holiday on the Hill Window Painting Competition.
 
Holiday on the Hill, which takes place Dec. 4-6, engages the Price Hill community through a variety of events, including a tree lighting ceremony, crafts and entertainment. This year’s theme is “Memories of Past Holidays in Price Hill,” so paintings should fit within those parameters.
 
“We started this competition to make our business districts more festive for the parade and during the entire holiday season,” Arts CAT Chair Ann Andriacco says.
 
The painting competition is open to multiple types of artists — professionals, high school students and family groups — who will be paired with a local business wishing to have its windows decorated.
 
Those interested in painting should sign up by Nov. 10 and will need to finish their work by Nov. 24 in time for the Thanksgiving Day Parade, when the Window Painting Competition scavenger hunt kicks off.
 
Winners will be announced during the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, where they’ll receive up to $300 in prize money for their talents and efforts.
 
“It’s been a lot of fun for everyone involved,” Andriacco says, “the painters, the businesses and the public who gets to enjoy original, local art all December.”
