We’re looking for a few great concrete artisans to participate in the World of Concrete’s Artistry in Decorative Concrete Demonstrations, February 2-6, 2015, in Las Vegas. Application deadline is October 31.
This year we are asking that each proposed project be accompanied by a detailed plan, including specifications that are as realistic as possible—in fact, the preference is that each artist work with an architect to develop their project. (An easy method would be to take a “snapshot” of an existing plan or project and use that for the basis of design at the demo.)
I’ve attached an entry form for you to fill out and send to Ken Hooker at email@example.com for consideration. To learn more, visit http://www.concreteconstruction.net/decorative-concrete/how-to-win-... or contact Ken.
