MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – Meijer offers local artists the opportunity to showcase their talent.
Meijer’s head office is looking for local artists for its first company-wide creative event called “A Collection of Voices”. Artists are encouraged to submit all kinds of artwork for the chance to be featured in over 200 stores across the Midwest.
There are 5 submission categories, including Black History Month, Pride, and Hispanic Heritage.
Artists must be over 18 and live in one of the six states (Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin) where Meijer is located.
Kavy Lenon, Meijer’s Supplier Diversity Manager, says they want to reflect the culture of the cities they are in.
“We have led several initiatives to really help diversify our supply chain to ensure that we reflect the communities we serve,” says Lenon. “Having a work of art like this really connects so many different people. “
The deadline for submission is November 7, 2021. Three winners per category will be selected by Thanksgiving this year. Meijer will purchase each winning coin for $ 5,000.
