Design our 2020 Jane’s Walk Tee

Submission deadline: February 11, 2020

January 14, 2020

In 2019, MAS provided Jane’s Walk t-shirts to all volunteer walk leaders, offering a way to unify the festival experience and amplify visibility for the Jane’s Walk movement.

This year, we are seeking designs to feature on our 2020 Jane’s Walk t-shirt. Local New York-based artists are encouraged to apply. The best submissions will be ones that reflect the exploratory, fun, and community-driven spirit of Jane’s Walk! Hundreds of walk leaders will take to the streets wearing this shirt during the 2020 festival on May 1-3, and the winning design will be featured in Jane’s Walk promotions throughout the spring.

The winning designer will also receive:

  • A complimentary ticket to MAS’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal Gala on April 27 at the Museum of Modern Art;
  • A one-year membership to MAS at the City-level; and
  • A one-year membership to MoMA at the Individual level!

Submissions will be accepted through February 11, 2020. For full applications instructions and design requirements, please scroll down.
