About the American Icon Art Competition
The American Icon Art Competition was born in 2012 at the Sausalito Art Festival Communications Group meeting in Sausalito, California. Then, the natural union of the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th anniversary and the SAF's 60th soon became evident. The Golden Gate Bridge, one of the most iconic structures in the world, became the subject of the first American Icon Art Competition. Thus was born the American Icon Art Competition. In 2013, the American Icon Art Competition is again offering an innovative, low carbon footprint, global opportunity for amateurs and professionals alike to submit their best creations in Photography and Painting of the 2013 American Icon.
Thousands of interested, art savvy patrons coming to the Sausalito Art Festival Labor Day Weekend will have the opportunity to view most, if not all of the submissions at the re-modeled Bay Model, on the grounds of the Festival. A specially designed sound component will simultaneously accompany the entrants' works of art shown on a large screen. For those who cannot attend the Sausalito Art Festival, all artwork from the American Icon Art Competition will be available for viewing on our website at americanicon.net.
The multi-media presentation will run Saturday through Monday of Labor Day weekend from 10 AM to 5 PM at the Army Corps of Engineers Bay Model on the Festival grounds.
