19th annual Art and our Natural Environment Art Scholarship

Liberty Graphics offers a scholarship annually to encourage Maine students to continue in their artistic endeavors. The contest is open to all high school seniors who are residents of Maine.  The scholarship is worth $1,000.  Artwork should reflect on our natural environment and be original works in traditional two-dimensional media; photography, sculpture, and computer-generated works cannot be considered. 

An application can be obtained from your guidance counselor, art teacher, or printed here: Liberty Graphics Art Scholarship

Help Liberty Graphics Address Light Pollution

Liberty Graphics is concerned about light pollution. $1 from the sale of each of our "Enlightened Planet" shirts goes to The International Dark-Sky Association.

"Once a source of wonder--and one half of the entire planet’s natural  environment—the star-filled nights of just a few years ago are vanishing in a yellow haze. Human-produced light pollution not only mars our view of the stars; poor lighting threatens astronomy, disrupts ecosystems, affects human circadian rhythms, and wastes energy to the tune of $2.2 billion per year in the U.S. alone." -from the International Dark-Sky Assoc. website
