Three Cheers! Minted x West Elm's 3rd Art Challenge

We’re thrilled to announce our third Minted x West Elm Art Challenge. West Elm is widely known as a leading purveyor of modern, eclectic home design and decor. West Elm and Minted share a passion for discovering and celebrating work from independent artists. Our previous Minted x West Elm challenges proved to be major hits. Winners of the previous challenges have been featured in West Elm stores around the country, in West Elm catalogs, or on westelm.com.

We turn to you, the Minted Community, to create art and photography that will delight West Elm and Minted customers and bring fresh style to West Elm’s chic rooms. We are specifically looking to source a great deal of photography from this challenge. And as always, a warm welcome to all new artists!
