Later they will be campaigning for the public’s vote for their artwork.

The public is invited to view the work and vote for their favorite piece of art. Voting costs $1 per vote, and there are no restrictions on the number of times you can vote.

The art will be auctioned at an event to be held at the Holland Theatre on Feb. 3 and the winner of the popular vote will be announced and receive a special trophy.
