Art Ovation Hotel Launches “Art At Home” Contest to Encourage Community to
Help Create a Digital Art Gallery.
The Art Ovation Hotel, located in downtown Sarasota, Florida, has announced the launch of its “Art At Home” social media initiative. The campaign, which launched today, April 23, 2020, asks the community to help create a digital art gallery by creating artwork and submitting their work online to the “Art At Home” contest.
“During a time where the community is stuck at home looking for activities to pass the time, we are hoping to provide a temporary creative escape, “ said Okan Karadag, General Manager for the hotel. “At the Art Ovation Hotel, we are used to having art displays, live exhibitions, lessons, and entertainment throughout the hotel on a daily basis. With a need to fill that current artistic void in our community, we are hoping the public can be the artists and Facebook the gallery,” stated Karadag.
“There is a lot of artistic talent out there and we want to show it off,” he added.
The community is invited to submit photos of their artwork into one of three categories: Children (for ages 13 and under), Amateur, and Professional. Submissions will be accepted between April 16 and May 31, 2020 at https://www.artovationhotel.com/art-at-home. The contest is free to enter and only one entry per person is allowed. First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded in each category. Prize winners, who will be chosen at the discretion of the contest committee, will be announced on the hotel’s Facebook page on June 8, 2020. The first place winners in each category will receive a complimentary two-night stay at the Art Ovation Hotel. Second place will receive a $100 hotel credit and third place will receive a $50 hotel credit. Submissions will be added to the “Art At Home” digital gallery and the winners will be added to the “Art At Home Winner’s Gallery” at the end of the contest.
