Calling all artists!

How would you like your artwork to be seen by the multitudes of Forks? Well, this is your chance. The Forks Forum is holding a contest to have the seven Forum newspaper vending machines decorated by local artists.If you are an artist or would be artist, submit your design idea to the Forks Forum office, 490 S. Forks Ave.

Seven designs will be selected. On June 23 the vending machines will be pulled and primed in preparation for local artwork, artists then will have them for a week to create their magic. The machines will go on display at the Forum office on July 2 where everyone can vote with their quarters through the morning of July 6.

The machine that receives the most quarters during that time period will be named the winner. All quarters collected will be donated to a charity of the winner's choice. The machines will be redistributed on July 7 to their original sales locations for everyone to enjoy. For more information or questions, call the Forum at 374-3311 or e-mail
