Artists Sought for new Bozeman License Plate Design

You might wear your heart on your sleeve, but how would you wear your town on your license plate?  Area artists are encouraged to submit designs for a new Bozeman license plate that represents the best of where we live.  What do Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley mean to you?  How would you represent that visually?  This is your chance to show us, and to see your artwork adorning vehicles across the state!

The City of Bozeman and the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture are excited to collaborate on a new license plate design to be released in 2010.   Proceeds from the license plate sales will go toward nurturing area children’s bodies and minds. Money collected from the purchase of the license plate will help fund tangible improvements to children’s areas in Bozeman parks by adding slides, climbers, wood chips, etc. and will also supplement the Emerson’s Children’s Art Education Program.

Artists must submit original designs that adhere to the State of Montana specifications listed on the application.  Specifications are available for download at  Artwork specifications may also be picked up at City Hall, 121 N. Rouse or at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture’s main office, 111 S. Grand.  Your license plate designs are due by December 14 and may be mailed or delivered to:

Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture
