The 2017 Summer of Love Youth Poster Contest was a smashing success! With nearly 100 entries from all-across Marin, students in two age categories, 12-14 and 15-18, submitted work of outstanding caliber on the topics of social justice and climate change.
After a thorough judging process, 21 winners and finalists were chosen to compete for the top prizes. Award winners were announced at a special presentation at RileyStreet Art Supply in September. An exhibition of all winners and finalists then began a 4-location tour, including the Marin Civic Center and the new Haight Street Art Center in San Francisco.
Check back here soonfor details on our 2018 contest. It will be amazing!!!
