Hey Students: Your Artwork Could Be on the Salt Shed…

Written by on December 19, 2022

Vocalo, WBEZ and the Chicago Sun-Times are teaming up this winter to sponsor a citywide student art contest in celebration of Chicago’s diversity. Find out how you could see your art on the Salt Shed below…

Vocalo and our sister outlets, WBEZ and the Sun-Times, have teamed up to give Chicago students the opportunity to have their artwork on the Salt Shed, an indoor and outdoor concert venue at the old Morton Salt building.

Through 11:59 p.m. on January 22, Chicagoland elementary, middle and high school students are encouraged to submit digital versions of an original painting, drawing or digital artwork representing the theme “Bringing Chicago’s voices together,” and what Chicago’s diversity means to them.

One winner will be chosen to have their artwork converted into a large outdoor mural at the Salt Shed, to be displayed from March 1 to April 30 on a space donated by Wintrust Bank. Runners up will also have their works showcased in the Sun-Times alongside their name, grade and school, and receive a gift certificate.

Find submission guidelines and a complete set of rules, visit the Chicago Sun-Times’ website.
