Art Competition: How to Draw a Dream

The Friends of Chicago Foundation, Sofia City Hall and Sofia City Library announce Art Competition: Children from Sofia and Chicago Draw Their Dreams. By July 31, 2011, children from Sofia, Bulgaria, and Chicago, the United States, are invited to send in digital format their drawings, water-colors or paintings to: duo1@abv.bg. The resolution of the scanned image should be 200-250 dpi or at least 150 dpi. Only one entry per child will be accepted. Entries are divided into two age groups (7-11 and 12-18). Each participant must submit his/her name, age, school and email address. Winners will be notified within ten days of the closing date. More information at www.friendsofchicago.org. For questions and inquiries: office@friendsofchicago.org.

Do children of Chicago and children of Sofia have the same dreams? We will find out when the best competition entries in each age group will be exposed at the Open Air Galery in the City Garden by the National Theater “Ivan Vazov” on September 1, 2011.

This Art Competition is organized in the framework of the 2011 Chicago Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria. The First Chicago Fest in Sofia, Bulgaria, co-organized by the Friends of Chicago Foundation, Sofia City Hall and the Embassy of the United States in Bulgaria, will be held in Sofia from Monday, June 20, 2011 to Sunday, June 26, 2011. Concerts, exhibitions, lectures about Chicago culture and architecture, as well as a Happening in the Borissov Park under the motto “I Love Chicago” are the events that will bring Chicago closer to Sofia and its citizens. Held just before the 4th of July, this Festival, initiated by a Bulgarian non-governmental organization, will use people-to-people diplomacy to promote Bulgarian-American friendship and cooperation and to provide public support for establishing a sister cities relationship between Bulgaria’s capital Sofia and Chicago.
