InTireNational Art Contest
The InTIREnational Art Contest is part of Upstate International 2016, a month-long series of community events and activities that celebrate the cultural diversity of South Carolina’s Upstate.
In its third year, the Michelin InTIREnational Art Contest is hosted by Michelin North America in conjunction with Upstate International. This year, Michelin challenged participants to create a piece of art that answers the question of how the Upstate of South Carolina celebrates international inclusion.
Using up to four scrap tires donated by Michelin, participants are asked to convert ordinary tires into extraordinary works of art. Two winning works of art are selected. One winner, the People’s Choice, is awarded to the entry that receives the most votes online at inspiredtires.com between March 1 – 31, 2016. The second winner is selected by a panel of judges. Each winning entry receives a $5,000 donation to a charity, school, or non-profit of its choice.
Entries will be on display at the Hughes Main Library, Heritage Green, Downtown Greenville during Upstate International Month in March 2016 and photos of each entry are posted on www.inspiredtires.com.
