Chisholm Trail Arts Council will be holding an art writing contest for the 2015-2016 playbill cover for their CTAC Live Concert Series. This contest is available to all artists, students, and citizens of all ages in the Stephens County area. Last year's winning entry for the 2014-2015 CTAC Live Concert Series playbill contest first place art piece was submitted by Selena Cruz, a Duncan High School student.

As it moves toward a 38th year, Chisholm Trail Arts Council is in the prime of life. Its programs have matured and increased, and its mission is clear: “To provide accessible artistic programs that enhance the quality of life, encourage economic development and educate the people of Stephens County.”

After a brief attempt to form an arts council in Duncan in the late 1960s, in 1976 the Duncan Arts & Humanities Council was incorporated. Duncan Arts & Humanities Council is generally acknowledged as the second community arts council incorporated in the state of Oklahoma. In 1998, the Duncan Arts & Humanities Council evolved into the Chisholm Trail Arts Council, with a mission to expand its programs and participation throughout Stephens County.

CTAC plays a vital role in promoting the arts in Duncan and Stephens County, with a variety of programs, presentations and projects. At the turn of the 21st century, CTAC absorbed a concert series originally produced by Duncan Community Concerts and renamed it Live From the Center. Programming for Live From the Center blossomed, with six concerts between September and May, featuring performances by an eclectic sampling of talent from around the globe.

All artwork must be an original piece, using any form of medium, that can be easily reproduced into printable form. All entries should include: Name, Age, Address, Phone, Email, School(if applicable), and a brief description of the art piece and medium.

Deadline for all artwork is June 1, 2015 and will be voted on by CTAC Board Members. The first place winner will have their artwork printed on the front cover of the 2015-2016 CTAC Live Concert Series playbill. Additional entries will be used within the playbill, or will other forms of promotion, as space will allow. Approximately 1000 copies of the playbill will be printed and will be distributed at each of the concerts presented by the CTAC Live Concert Series.
