Calling All Artists for the “If I Can Dream” Elvis Art Contest and Exhibit

May 08, 2012



Graceland and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art are excited to announce the “If I Can Dream” Elvis Art Contest and Exhibit.

Artists are invited to create an original piece of artwork based on their response to the lyrics “If I Can Dream” for a chance to have it selected to appear at a special exhibit of artwork at the Memphis Brooks Museum. All forms of media are being accepted now and the deadline to submit your artwork is June 16, 2012.

A professional panel of judges will select the artwork for the “If I Can Dream” Exhibit at the Memphis Brook Museum, which will be on display from July 21 - September 16. From the selections, the judges will award a first, second, and third place prize in three divisions: professional, non-professional, and youth. The winners will be announced on June 25. The remaining submissions will be a part of the exhibition via PowerPoint in the gallery. In addition, visitors of the exhibition will have the opportunity to vote for the “Fans Favorite” throughout Elvis Week 2012.
