Pratt soliciting ornament designs
The Pratt Museum in Homer is accepting entries for the creation of a limited edition ornament for the new Pratt Museum ornament series.
All designs submitted should be in keeping with the Pratt Museum mission statement: "The Pratt Museum is dedicated to the process of education by exploring the natural environment and human experience relative to the Kachemak Bay region of Alaska and its place in the world."
Works in all media will be considered. The museum would like to presell as many pieces as possible through advanced sales offered to the membership and the community.
The retail price of the ornament should be between $30 and $75, depending on the design chosen.
The entry deadline is Monday. A final selection will be made by Aug. 1.
Production of the ornaments should be completed and and the ornaments should be delivered to the Pratt by Oct. 1.
The artist will be given full credit on all advertising associated with the ornament.
