Looking for Artists to Help Celebrate Purcellville!

As part of Celebrate Purcellville, the Purcellville Arts Council and the Train Station Advisory Board are co-sponsoring two contests to celebrate the Purcellville Train Station! See below for more information.

Purcellville Train Station Logo Contest
The goal is to have a logo created for the Purcellville Train Station to help brand the historic building which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The winning logo will be used online, in videos, on print materials, on merchandise, and for other purposes. The winner of this logo contest will receive $500. 

Celebrating the History of the Purcellville Train Station Art Contest for Students
The theme of the art contest is “Celebrating the History of the Purcellville Train Station.”  The contest is part of the annual Celebrate Purcellville event, and winning art will be displayed at the 2024 Purcellville Music and Arts Festival.
