Denim Art
Contest Directions: On May 20, 140 years ago during the Gold Rush years, Levi Strauss designed and made blue trousers from strong sailcloth with pockets strengthened by copper rivets. He called them "jeans" and designed them for miners who were complaining that their cotton trousers were tearing too easy. Miners liked the jeans so much that Strauss immediately founded the first company to manufacture the jeans. This is how blue jeans were born as we know them.
To celebrate the 140th birthday of the blue jeans, add jeans to any works of art (paintings, drawings, statues, etc.) one way or another. You can also use other clothing (skirts, jackets, hats, etc.) made from denim. Let's show that jeans were popular through all the history of mankind.
