Arty Girl: Call for Entries for the Mutant Piñata Show

It's a particularly gloomy day today (and I'm not just talking about the weather) so I'm grateful for the chance to write about the Mutant Piñata Show. This project is always so much fun it's hard not to feel a little cheered up.

This is the third year Bragg's Pie Factory will become a hanging garden of some of the most whimsical and over-the-top piñatas we've ever seen. Of course, since this is an anything goes kind of show, many piñatas will take up floor space as well.

And here's the best part: everyone is encouraged to submit. All work (even the naughty ones) from all ages will be exhibited during March and April 2010.

So, if you're interested, here's what you need to know:

Deadline is March 1st, 2010 and your piñata should be delivered to the Bragg's Pie Factory at 1301 Grand Avenue between the hours of 4-8 p.m. or by special arrangement.

You'll need to include an application form (you can make one yourself) that includes the following:

-Name of Artist(s)
-Group (if applicable)
-Contact Number
-E-Mail Address
-Name of piñata

You don't have to sell the piece but, if you do, 30% goes to Bragg's Pie (or "other worthy causes").

Participants definitely have time to think on this so I really can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this year.

Now go get yourself some chicken wire, newspaper strips, tissue paper and whatever the heck else you want to tack on this thing and get to it!
