First Impressions of Olmsted Falls Our Invitation to Your Imagination

The City of Olmsted Falls and members of the Art Contest Committee proudly announce our first annual Art Contest.  Through First Impressions, we will showcase artist-inspired interpretations of our beautiful city. Everyone who lives in or visits Olmsted Falls has long known the special beauty that our city parks, landscapes, waterfalls and historical architecture hold. Now, we will offer opportunities to share impressions of our most picturesque community and recognize the many inspired artists who come here.

Winners will have their works reproduced on greeting cards, postcards, photo reproductions, t-shirts and other offerings that will be available for sale. Proceeds from the sales will benefit the emerging Main Street Olmsted Falls, a nonprofit organization that will create sustainable economic development and a vibrant cultural center in our downtown.
So, get your creative on and share your First Impressions - Our Invitation to Your Imagination of Olmsted Falls.
