Caricature Contest

Draw a Chilliwack Bruin and win tickets to a show at the Cultch

Submitted by KellyAnne TeBrinke, CACC


hough the local art groups will not be suiting up and facing off against the Bruins, they will be at the Wednesday, March 2 Bruins game in full representation, showcasing brilliantly talented local artists and musicians.


One of these artists could be you! In an effort to connect the sports community with the arts, a Caricature Contest is being launched, encouraging artists of all ages to pick their favourite Bruin and sketch a caricature to enter for a chance to win a fantastic grand prize.

Headshots of the Bruin players can be found on the above website, along with contest specifics, including size, media, and entry instructions. A caricature is an exaggerated image of a person, often with a miniature body, striking a pose. The completed works of art are to be dropped off at the Community Arts Council reception, located within the Cultural Centre on Corbould Street, by Friday, February 25.

All entries will be on display at the March 2 Bruins game with ribbons awarded to the top five caricatures, judged by Bruins personnel. The top five entries will also be on display at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for two weeks following the game.

Grand prizes include two tickets to a Bruins game, two tickets to Pinocchio, two tickets to The Matinee, two tickets to The Drowsy Chaperone, and free guitar lessons. These prizes have been generously donated by the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association, Chilliwack Bruins, Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, Chilliwack Community Arts Council, Chilliwack Players Guild, and the Chilliwack Academy of Music.

The caricature contest is just one of the many terrific offerings the participating art organizations have planned, including a line-up of fantastic entertainment at the March 2 Bruins game. This is a game you do not want to miss—it will be like going to a concert and sports game at the same time! All fans of the Arts receive an exclusive discounted ticket for the March 2 game of just $10. Just mention your love for the Arts when you call the Bruins office at 604. 792.GOAL(4625)
