Every year, Art Hounds has a t-shirt design contest, and this year they are trying to get more college art students involved. Artists submit designs, the brain trust picks three or four they really like, then they have a t-shirt printing party where people choose their favorite design. This year's winner will receive two tickets to "Rock the Garden," and their design will become the official Art Hounds t-shirt for the next year.
The deadline for entries is May 24th at 5pm.
