For the 2019 Calgary Stampede Poster, we engaged youth in a unique learning and development opportunity: the Calgary Stampede Poster Competition. As one of the largest arts scholarships in Canada, youth across Alberta were invited to enter for their chance to design the 2019 Stampede Poster and participate in a youth achievement opportunity of a lifetime.
The chosen piece, drawn in pastel by Rebecca Shuttleworth and inspired by a photograph taken by another young Alberta artist, Samantha Callioux, salutes women in western culture, presenting fine art qualities with a fresh perspective and untraditional composition.
