SOLON– Are you an artist searching for a palette for your artistic expression? How about painting a calf? The Solon Library Foundation’s Calf Classic has four sculpted resin calves available for artistic creation. The four Calf Classic sponsors, Bridge Community Bank, Sam’s Main Street Market, the Solon Economist and Tom Cardella will choose from the artistic submissions for that one particular expression to be painted on their sponsored calf.
The sponsors and selected artists will be publicized throughout the months leading up to the 41st Annual Beef Days Celebration, July 20 and 21. The calves will ride in the Saturday parade sporting the sponsor and artist names, spend the day stabled in a Main Street booth and auctioned off Saturday late afternoon.
Artist’s packets are available on the library website by clicking on the calf. Artist’s designs should be submitted by April 17, sponsor’s selection process April 23 and those artists selected will be notified by April 30. Calves should be completed by July 1 and will appear in local businesses up to the Beef Days celebration. Questions? Call 319-624-2710.
