Arrow Five Years Out Art Challenge
For the fifth year, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival is partnering with 2017 Festival presenting sponsor Arrow Electronics in the Five Years Out Arrow Art Challenge, an international challenge to inspire artists to take the concept of innovation and express what five years out looks like in the art world, translating ideas into their artistic medium.
Through a competitive and collaborative selection process, seven finalists were awarded a commission to create a forward-thinking piece. Artists selected to participate include: Amenda Corso, Sharon Brush, Dan Stiles, Aaron Hequembourg, Peter Clouse, Amy Carstensen and Edrex Fontanilla. Each finalist’s innovated art piece is on display at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival from July 1 to July 3 on Detroit and 2nd in the Room & Board parking lot. One of the finalists will receive the Innovation Award, a $10,000 grand prize.
Five Years Out – The Arrow brand
Most people live in the present, the world of now. But a handful live in a world that doesn’t quite exist yet — the world of Five Years Out. It’s the tangible future, where possible meets practical to produce new technologies that help make life better. Just as Arrow works Five Years Out with technology, we also foster innovative collaborations with local partners to enrich and assist our communities.
