The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County and The Oscar Hammerstein Museum and Theatre Education Center (Highland Farm) announce the Art of Oscar, a unique celebration and competition that will serve as a fundraiser for the participating nonprofit organizations, community artists and participating event artists.
Visual artists of all mediums are invited to create works inspired by Hammerstein’s life, music, humanitarian service, and his home, and submit them for awards, exhibition and public sale at Highland Farm this May. Artist registration, before or on April 1, is at bucksarts.org
Since township approvals in 2016, a group has been working to save Hammerstein’s homestead from a proposed four-lot subdivision and re-purpose the site as a dynamic Broadway history browsing museum and education center. For information, visit HammersteinCenter.org
The Art of Oscar is a planned and organized event of the Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County that will assist in the group’s fundraising. Artists will create an art piece that honors the legacy of Hammerstein by representing Highland Farm or other aspects of his career in music, stage and screen, or his championing humanitarian initiatives.
The Art of Oscar is open to all visual artists age 16 and older. The top 100 selected pieces will be included in the exhibition and sale.
Prizes are as follows: 1st Prize “The Oscar” $500; 2nd Prize $300; 3rd Prize $100; two Honorable Mention Awards $50.
Registration for Art of Oscar opened March 1, at bucksarts.org. On March 9, artists are welcome to visit Hammerstein’s farm for inspiration (rain date March 10).
