Free Online Art Competition for New York City Art Students
In case you haven’t realized it yet, we love supporting the arts in schools and encouraging kids to pursue an interest in art. We’re thrilled to announce with THE RIDE a free online art contest for youths and students . To celebrate the unveiling of the FAZZINO RIDE, a new way to tour New York City with Fazzino’s pop art as your backdrop, young artists are invited to create a piece of original work based on Fazzino and their favorite scenes of New York City.
Art Contest Winners Get to Hop on THE RIDE with Charles Fazzino
Not only is the art contest a great way for young artists to show off their art work, but the contest winners will be able to meet Charles Fazzino and take the RIDE with him.
The top ten art competition entries with the most votes will be invited to the Fazzino RIDE opening Night Gala scheduled for May 3rd, 2012 where we will be unveiling the new RIDE tour bus covered in Fazzino artwork! The Art contest winners will win an exclusive spot on THE FAZZINO RIDE with Charles himself!
Post Your New York City Art Online to Enter the Free Art Contest
New York area art students and youths over the age of 13 are encouraged to upload their Fazzino inspired artwork on THE RIDE‘s Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/ExperienceTheRide/app_95936962634, and tell everyone they know to vote for them! Ten (10) finalists will be selected based on how many people “like” their New York City Fazzino Inspired art.
The deadline to upload a picture to THE RIDE’S Facebook page is April 30th. Contestants should encourage others to vote for their art contest submission. People vote via “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” buttons and can vote once a day until the contest ends.
Take THE RIDE and Save
On THE RIDE, guests are given front row seats as the streets of New York City become a stage. Famous city landmarks are a backdrop to a live show with unparalleled technology, fun facts, and amazing street performances. THE RIDE is an unforgettable New York City experience. THE RIDE is a creative spin on the more conventional theatrical performance, giving all riders a facing-the-street view of New York’s active streetscape with frequent stops featuring multi-talented street performers. Each RIDE is a different experience and the FAZZINO RIDE will be the perfect blend of NY seen through the eyes and art of Charles Fazzino!
THE RIDE launches from Times Square and interested guests should check the website for daily schedules. Private group RIDES are available by scheduling in advance. THE RIDE’S box office is located at Madam Tussauds, 234 West 42nd Street, NYC.
