Support FRIENDS and Change American Latino History!
April 25 2012
Do you or someone you know have an artistic bent? The Friends of the American Latino Museum (FRIENDS) is looking for a design that captures the spirit of the American Latino Community for their 2012 Campaign Design Contest. The winner gets free flight to attend the 2012 NCLR Annual Conference in Las Vegas, July 7–10, where the official design will be unveiled.
The winning design will be featured on campaign posters, informational handouts, promotional buttons, donation cards, and other materials to create awareness and encourage the approval of the “Smithsonian American Latino Museum Act.” The legislation would allow the creation of the only national museum dedicated to the origins and contributions of the American Latino community.
The deadline for submission is April 30, 2012 at midnight PDT. The finalists will be announced May 4.
Remember—you don’t need to be a professional artist. If you think you can present the American Latino experience through a sculpture, painting, or a graphic design, show your talent and be part of a historic movement!
