Create | Connect | Challenge

We’re thrilled to announce our first art competition here at 100 Kellogg Lane hosted by Courtyard Events called Art Comp. We’re doing an open call to invite all artists globally to submit their work.

Art Comp is a competition open to all local, national and international artists, both professional and amateur. One hundred artists will be chosen to have their art displayed throughout the property at 100 Kellogg Lane from May to September 2022. 100 Kellogg Lane is here to inspire the community and generate conversation through global art. We want to challenge creators to think and explore outside of everyday life. To entertain and create a fun and thought-provoking art exhibition for the viewers. This competition is open to all ages and local, national, and global artists.
