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.  Artists submit a proposed artwork for a chance to win cash prizes up to $7,000 and a chance to have their winning work transformed into a 40th anniversary limited-edition, commemorative piece.

ABOUT THE COMPETITION: To celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012, Jordan Vineyard & Winery is bringing wine country to New York artists in their own backyard, challenging these talented professionals to create a commemorative work of art that combines the essence of Jordan wine with New York’s distinct flavors of wine, food and design.

EXPOSURE OPPORTUNITIES: A panel of expert judges will select the top five proposed works of art that meet the competition criteria. These five submissions will be unveiled at a private Jordan 40th anniversary event on April 5, 2012, and artists will be invited to attend. Those artists will then execute their proposed artworks over the course of four weeks. These five finished artworks, alongside their proposed submission pieces, will be shown at a public Jordan Winery tasting and art exhibition event in New York City in early May 2012, where a panel of judges will critique the works, and the grand prize, first runners-up and second runners-up winners will be announced. Jordan’s PR firm will promote all five artists and both events to New York media.

Artists Capturing Jordan Estate

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 a special dual anniversary in 2012—both the founding of the winery and second-generation vintner John Jordan’s 40th birthday—Jordan Vineyard & Winery is bringing wine country to artists across the country through the 4 on 4 Art Competition.
