Representatives from Davis Arts Center and Whole Foods Market Davis will select the top 5 submissions, which will be entered into an online contest where community members can vote for their favorite designs. Voting will take place October 1 – 10. Originals of the top 5 artworks will also be displayed at Davis Arts Center during this time.

The winning design will be printed on tote bags which will be sold at Whole Foods Market Davis in December. All funds raised through this project will go to Davis Arts Center to support its arts education and outreach programs.


Contest theme: Healthy foods that I love to put in my shopping bag!

In Yolo County, we are surrounded by beautiful farmlands and gardens that produce delicious, healthy foods. What’s your favorite healthy food? Where was it grown? What does it look like on the farm or in the garden? What does it look like in the store? What does it looks like when you are preparing it or when it’s on your plate? Show us one thing that you like most about growing and eating healthy food.
