Jose Cuervo Tradicional has officially opened the voting phase to select the most inspiring mural in the Tradicional Mural Project.
The nationwide program, inspired by the influence of Latino heritage, showcases 10 original murals created by artists from across the United States, and invites consumers to vote through February 28th, 2013 on Facebook.
The artist and mural with the most votes will receive a $15,000 grant as well as a $15,000 donation to a local organization in the region they represent, on behalf of Jose Cuervo Tradicional. All consumers 21 years of age and older will be eligible to vote at the Jose Cuervo Tradicional Mural Project’s Facebook page from January 15 through February 28.
Only votes received at the Jose Cuervo Tradicional Mural Project’s Facebook page during this time period will determine which of the 10 finalists will win. The grand prize winner will be announced in March 2013.
The 10 artists, selected on the basis of submitted art portfolios and a personal essay, were given thirty days to complete their murals, which were unveiled at an exclusive event in Chicago in November 2012.
Each mural explored Latino themes around music, education and family that help paint the nation’s cultural melting pot through a range of traditional and contemporary painting styles. All 10 murals will be showcased in a prominent artistic venue later in the year.
