GAME IT FORWARD ART SHOW
CONTEST PRIZE: $150
The 2017 Game It Forward Event is having its 2nd annual art exhibit showcasing art work from local artists comprised of fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and adventure gaming genres as well as gaming culture icons. We would like for you and/or your pupils to enter art work in this exhibit. The submissions will be either original concepts or works inspired by specific games. A top artist will be chosen and awarded by a People’s Choice vote by event participants and votes from a jury made up of the Game It Forward Staff and Volunteers. Artists may then donate their work, if they choose, in the silent auction where their work will not only go to the highest bidder, but will also aid in Game It Forward’s efforts of raising funds for Project Teacher of Northwest Arkansas.
The 3rd annual Game It Forward is at the Fayetteville Town Center on Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th. This fun filled weekend will consist of friendly gaming of all kinds including open gaming from the Game It Forward Library, the Bentonville Public Library selection, tournaments, game demos, a silent auction, door prizes, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and more!
