Plenty of our visitors find artistic inspiration in Yates Mill and the surrounding parkland. Are you one of them? If so, consider entering the park’s eighth annual “Mill as Muse” art and photography contests.

The staff of Historic Yates Mill County Park host these annual competitions and exhibitions to give community members a chance to show off their skills and to celebrate the beauty of the mill and park. Last year, the 93 entries included 58 photos and 35 works of art.

Prizes are awarded for photographs and for artwork (painting, drawing and more) in categories including nature and wildlife, people in the park, and Yates Mill itself. Separate prizes are awarded in each category for adult and youth artists.

You can turn in your submission any time from Saturday, Jan. 25, until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 2. The winners will be announced and prizes awarded at a reception on Feb. 8 The winning entries will be displayed in the park’s A.E. Finley Center exhibit hall through May.
