In honor of its 40th anniversary in 2012, Jordan Vineyard & Winery has created the 4 on 4 Art Competition, a four-city initiative that challenges local artists to create a commemorative work of art that blends the elegance of Jordan wines with the flavor of each city. The competition kicks off January 5 with the 4 on 4 Miami call for entries, organized by Bakehouse Art Complex.
Call for Artists: 4 on 4 Art Competition: Artists in four cities celebrating four decades of Jordan wine in their community. The four cities include: Miami, New York, Los Angeles & Dallas.
Grand Award: $5,000 and the opportunity to be featured in two art exhibitions, publicity campaigns and Jordan 40th anniversary commemorative gifts. The winning work will be transformed into a limited-edition piece which will be distributed to Jordan’s loyal customers across South Florida.
First Runner-up: $2,000 and the opportunity to be featured in two art exhibitions and post-event publicity.
Second Runner-up: $1,000 and the opportunity to be featured in two art exhibitions and post-event publicity.
Artists and Jordan Vineyard & Winery: Since 1976, the Jordan family has been heralded for its elegant wines, culinary excellence and gracious hospitality. Over the years, the Jordans have commissioned artists to capture the beauty of the winery chateau through the seasons – its ivy-draped façade, window boxes sprouting spring flowers, the antique clock above a sweeping balcony. To celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012, Jordan Vineyard & Winery is bringing wine country to Miami artists in their own backyard, challenging these talented professionals to create a commemorative work of art that combines the elegant art of Jordan wine with Miami’s distinct flavors of wine, food and design.
A panel of expert judges—including Roxanne Vargas, co-anchor of NBC Miami’s “Live Miami;” Nina Johnson, director at Gallery Diet; Susanne Birbragher, associate publisher of ArtNexus; and Chef Michael Schwartz, proprietor of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink—will select the top three works of art that meet the competition criteria. Top three winners receive cash prize awards: a grand award ($5,000), first runner-up ($2,000) and second runner-up ($1,000). A top 40 will be selected to participate in a public exhibition at the Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) on March 29, 2012. From there, the judges will select their top ten artworks that will be shown at a private, VIP event at the Soho House on Miami Beach on April 2, 2012, where the grand prize, first runner-up and second runner-up winners will be announced.4 on 4 Miami Judges
