Enter 2012 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition by Feb. 24

TERRE HAUTE — The Wabash Valley Outdoor Sculpture Collection and Arts Illiana are seeking entries for the 2012 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition.

Entries must be mailed or delivered by Feb. 24. The competition is open to individuals and students living, working or attending school in Clay, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo counties. Cash prizes will be awarded.

Works will be accepted in three categories: poetry inspired by a work of art; poetry inspired by trees or other green things; and poetry inspired by city life or an urban environment. Up to two poems per contestant will be accepted. The contest will be judged by three Indiana poets.

The competition is designed to encourage the writing of new poetry as a contemporary art form deeply rooted in tradition; to foster an interdisciplinary connection between art forms; and to honor Max Ehrmann, a treasured regional poet whose works were inspired by a love for his own community, its natural surroundings and the people in it.

A life-size bronze sculpture of this nationally renowned writer, by West Terre Haute artist Bill Wolfe, was installed at the corner of Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue in 2010 as part of the Art Spaces collection.

For an entry form, go to www.wabashvalleyartspaces.com or www.artsilliana.org or send a request to info@wabashvalleyartspaces.com. You may also call Art Spaces (812) 235-2801 or Arts Illiana (812) 235-5007.

Completed entry forms and poems should be delivered or mailed to: Art Spaces Inc., 669 Ohio St., Terre Haute, IN 47807.

Winning entries will be exhibited at the Vigo County Public Library in April. Public readings of winning works as well as works by the judges will be held during April at various locations to be announced at a later time.

This exhibit is sponsored in part by St. Mary-of-the-Woods College and other area universities and businesses.
