Off the Rack: 'Your Art Here' T-Shirts at H&M, Plus A Giveaway

For the second year, H&M hosted its Your Art Here contest to help five aspiring artists get their work noticed. Over 2,200 amazing artworks were submitted to the Your Art Here contest from all over the world, then a panel of star judges (which included blogger Bryan Boy) selected the winners with input from fans. The five winning works of art were printed on T-shirts and are now available for purchase in H&M stores all over the United States. I spotted the tees at the H&M 5th Avenue store in New York City - really creative and a great initiative for artists. Find out more about the winners at

Win Cool Stuff:
H&M sent over two tees (size M and L) - drop a comment below by 12 noon ET on 8/23/11 and I'll pick one reader at random to ship them to. Good luck!

UPDATE: The giveaway has now ended and is closed to further entries. The winner is #4 Piper Alexander! Congrats and thanks to everyone who commented!

Great idea although I notice that all the winners have similar styles. It would have been nice to see some differences in perspectives. I do like the one in the bottom right though!

Graphic Tees are so hip right now and I guess I need to be too! I am sad to say that my kids have H&M in their closets, but I do not as of yet! Outfit me with a large tee and I will be a happy girl!

H&M is one of my fav stores, just sad the closet is hours away. I love the tee and the fact that the company gives artists the chance to show the world their talent and put it on display! They will be great for around campus lounging or a night out- versatile, I love it! Send the shirts right this way, please :-)

Yay! I love your blog!
