For the second year, Tequila Herradura has announced that Creative Capital will be the charitable beneficiary of its Barrel Art Competition. Herradura has issued an open call for artists in seven cities—Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, and San Francisco—to participate in the competition. Ten artists in each city will be invited to transform tequila barrels into unique artworks and compete for a $10,000 first prize, a $3,000 second prize and a $1,000 third prize. All other participating artists will receive a $300 honorarium.
As part of their commitment to individual artists, Herradura will donate $70,000 to Creative Capital to underwrite the presentation of our acclaimed professional development workshops for artists in each competition city. All 70 artists in the Barrel Art Competition will be invited to participate in a workshop free of charge. We are so grateful for Tequila Herradura’s continued support of Creative Capital and their commitment to professional development for artists!
