Art Glass Festival Contest at the Delphi Creativity Center in Lansing, MI.
Each year the Delphi Creativity Center is transformed into an art glass wonderland filled with the creative artwork of our customers. With over 200 pieces of art on display and thousands of dollars in prizes, Art Glass Festival is truly one of the highlights of the year at Delphi Glass. All skill levels, from young artists or beginning crafters to studio artists, are encouraged to participate. This is the biggest event of the year at Delphi. We encourage everyone to stop by and see the exhibit which will run the entire month of April.
Join in the creativity and let our store become your art gallery. Submit your art today for a chance to win either a category prize or the coveted "People's Choice" award. All young artists will receive recognition for their participation. All participating artists receive an invitation to the exclusive Artist's Reception to kick off the show and announce the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. It is a great chance to meet other artists and enjoy refreshments. Following the reception, the exhibit opens to the public with door prizes and fun for all.
