The Detroit Red Wings and Rehmann Art Contest is back for 2023-24, welcoming fans to submit their original works of art through February 1, 2024. The contest – the third consecutive art initiative co-managed by Rehmann and the Red Wings – invites participants to submit hockey-inspired artwork focused on dominating on the ice and capitalizing on team strengths.
Contestants will submit their entries virtually for the first round, with finalists invited to deliver their physical artworks for additional consideration. The judging panel will be comprised of Rehmann and Ilitch Sports + Entertainment (IS+E) executives as well as an outside guest panelist. The winner will be announced on February 22, 2024, and their winning artwork will be installed in the Rehmann Club at Little Caesars Arena in the heart of The District Detroit.
“The success of the art contest over the past two years underscores the importance of community-centered initiatives and the passion Michiganders have for their NHL team,” said Stacie Kwaiser, CEO of Rehmann. “We are proud to stand with the Detroit Red Wings to bring together Michigan’s communities of artists and sports enthusiasts.”
To enter, artists must submit permissible mediums including drawing, painting, etching, original digital creations and photography 24” by 30” in size. Pieces will be judged on creativity, originality, and the theme of “power play,” which encompasses power, strength and playmaking.
“We are fortunate to have a partner like Rehmann that is as committed as we are to engaging our fans and building stronger community relationships,” said Chris Coffman, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for Ilitch Sports + Entertainment. “Seeing the range of inspiring artwork submitted by fans across the state underlines the love for the Red Wings.”
In addition to having their artwork displayed in the Rehmann Club at Little Caesars Arena, the winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize and four tickets to a Red Wings home game. Artwork will also be published on DetroitRedWings.com
