March 2015 will mark San Antonio’s 30th annual Contemporary Art Month
, a 30-day long celebration featuring a variety of events which highlight local contemporary artists and their projects.
CAM will officially kick off at Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum
on Thursday, March 5 at 6 p.m., during which time Miss CAM Antonio will be crowned.
Miss CAM Antonio hopefuls will compete in a virtual pageant again this year by submitting answers to the following question via Facebook: “As Miss CAM Antonio, how would you promote contemporary art in San Antonio?”
Females and males can both enter the competition (Miss? Perhaps Miss/ter would be more appropriate), and there is no age limit for submission. Contestants can be as creative or as cut-and-dry as they would like given the options of submitting photos, videos, or written responses to the pageant’s one deciding question.
The four contestants who receive the most likes on the Miss CAM Facebook page
will move on to the pageant’s final round where they will be judged by a panel of CAM Executive and Artist Advisory Board members. The lucky winner will get to gloat at the Blue Star CAM kick-off while wearing their custom-designed Christie Blizard tiara and John Dean sash. An opportunity to wave and clutch his or her pearls atop a tractor is also in the cards for whoever wins the artsy pageant.
Game on, art lovers. Craft your submissions thoughtfully and have them in by midnight on March 3 for a chance to win.
