ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 9, 2018) — Anaheim is tapping the creativity of local high schools to help turn Beach Boulevard and Lincoln Avenue into a community art canvas.

As part of a digital art competition from the city of Anaheim and partner Zelman Development Co., 10 winning entries will be featured at Beach and Lincoln, the gateway to west Anaheim.

The art will help usher in something big: a 250,000-square-foot shopping center with a main street-style paseo, restaurants, outdoor dining, shops, plazas, public art and other features.

Westgate Center is a major part of Anaheim's efforts to transform Beach Boulevard. Anaheim is also working with neighboring cities to create a cool sense of place along Beach with mile markers and other signs.

The Community Canvas Art Competition is part of this effort.

Art submissions must be in the theme of "community," with students reflecting what community means to them.

This broad theme may include but is not limited to art representing the city of Anaheim, a student’s neighborhood or Beach Boulevard itself, with its connection to Southern California’s beach scene.

How it works:

The competition is open to Anaheim's eight high schools

A judging panel including city officials, community members and Zelman will pick 10 top entries for printing on the fence screen along Beach Boulevard

The public will vote on the top three entries

The top three will receive prizes of $500 for first place, $300 for second and $100 for third

The first place student’s school will receive an art supply donation

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 28, with voting to take place in March. The finalists will be chosen and displayed this spring and summer.
