Chuppah Making Community Art Contest

Chuppah Making Community Art Contest

The deadline is moved to November 5, 5pm EST. HS Students interested in Arts and participating in this contest will earn 10 community hours.

Welcome to our Community Art Contest!

You don't have to be a professional Artist (but you can) to participate in this contest! Even a family with a baby can do it in some way. The idea is to create a Top cover for Chuppah - that will stay in the community and be used to Wed young Russian Jewish couples for many years. We would love various pieces - created by adults and their children, that can represent our vibrant community as of now. We will select 25 artworks, later sewn to the base of the top part of Chuppah. Your art must be washable, flexible, and 10x10 inches to qualify. with extra space on all four sides (12x12 will work). Please put the name of the art piece and the names of all participants on that art piece, as well, to save your spot in history. If your artwork has yet to be selected for this particular project, you can request it back or present it to Jookender for other projects we can use. Participating in this contest automatically allows Jookender to use art you submitted for this contest or Jookender marketing needs related to this program, as well as the other Jookender programs to use art you submitted for this contest instead of to use your art.

Come create with us - September 29, 2023 at 6:00 pm

The contest is FREE to enter. However, your donation will help us to put all pieces together for a final product. Suggested donation $20 per submitted art entry.

What is Chuppah? According to Wikipedia, a chuppah, also huppah, chipe, chupah, or chuppa, is a canopy under which a Jewish couple stand during their wedding ceremony. It consists of a cloth or sheet, sometimes a tallit, stretched or supported over four poles, or sometimes manually held up by attendants to the ceremony.

This event is free, but donations are welcome. Would you like to donate today?
