VENTURA — In honor of Ventura Land Trust’s 20th anniversary, VLT is inviting Ventura County artists to participate in an art contest.
Using a 2D design, artists are encouraged to use the circle outline of VLT’s logo as the form for a designed inspired by Ventura County’s natural beauty. The artwork can explore a wide range of themes, such as the intersection of community and nature, Indigenous cultural heritage and the protection of open spaces.
There will be three groups for the contest: kids (2-12), teens (13-17), and adults (18 and older), with a winner for each group and an overall winner. The overall winning design will be revealed at VLT’s birthday celebration on Feb. 24 at Topa Topa Brewing Co., 4880 Colt St., Ventura.
.The winning artwork will be featured on a special edition VLT t-shirt and sticker.
