The museum is working with Adams Outdoor Advertising on the contest. A panel will pick 20 candidates and the public will vote to select the winners. Billboards featuring their work will rotate among sites for a year starting in May. The deadline to apply is March 14.
The museum also is holding a T-shirt design contest for the 2011 Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Art Fair, which takes place June 3-4. It's the 60th year for the event. The deadline is March 1.
Details of the contests are on the museum's website.
