In addition, there will be a “Think Outside the Box” competition for group art projects.
For Think Outside the Box, the groups will receive a “box of randomness” to form into a sculpture.
“Your masterpiece can be humorous, elegant, jaw dropping, sky high, itsy bitsy, extremely detailed, straight forward, etc. The only stipulations are that you use all materials, consider the theme (Appalachian Art), work as a group and have lots of fun creating your 3-D masterpiece,” according to the contest rules.
