Area residents are invited to submit poems inspired by Sierra Vista’s water story for possible inclusion in the takeaway coloring book being produced for the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street Water/Ways exhibit in 2019.
The entry form is available here.
The Henry F. Hauser Museum has selected a hand-crafted quilt from its collection entitled “San Pedro River,” made by Wendy Seals, as the image representing Sierra Vista’s water story in the Smithsonian Institute’s traveling Water/Ways exhibition. Residents in the greater Sierra Vista area who are at least 16 years old can submit poems inspired by the quilt from Friday, Nov. 17, through Saturday, Dec. 30, for a chance to become part of the exhibit when it visits Sierra Vista in January, 2019.
The winning poem will be included in the takeaway coloring book being produced for the exhibit by Arizona Humanities. Submissions must be original, non-published, non-copyrighted poems of 250 words or fewer. The quilt can be viewed in person at the Henry F. Hauser Museum.
