Paint Our Wall Art Contest

One lucky artist from our community will get to put their own Dinosaur Beach design in the lobby of Farmington Underground.

To enter you will need to send us a sketch/draft of your dinosaur-inspired design. The space on the wall is 4 ft wide x 5 ft tall. There must be at least one dinosaur in the artwork, and include a black tree similar to or inspired by the Farmington Underground logo. Along with your artwork, please tell us your name, town of residence, title of your work, and the medium you would use to complete the artwork on our wall (acrylic paint, pencil, etc.). Please send us your entry as a direct message through Facebook/Instagram or as an email to escape@farmingtonunderground.com. The contest ends on Friday, March 13th, 2020. We will select a number of finalists, which will then be voted on by the community here through Facebook and Instagram, to get a winner! 

We would love to promote all local aspiring artists, and all finalists will need to have their artwork shared with the public, but if you are not selected as a finalist and would like your art to remain anonymous (not be shared on social media), please let us know at the time of your entry.

Prize: In addition to getting to paint your art on our wall, the winner will win a free escape room for up to 8 people at Farmington Underground Escape Room (~$160).

Since the winner will need to physically come in to our facility here in Farmington to complete the artwork, this contest is only open to residents of Maine or students currently living in Maine. After being selected, the winner will have up to 2 months to successfully complete their artwork on our wall in order to win the prize.
