The United States Mint once again invites artists nationwide to apply for its Artistic Infusion Program to help design American coins and medals. The Artistic Infusion Program was created to enrich and invigorate the design of United States coins and medals by developing a pool of professional artists (Master Designers and Associate Designers) and college and graduate-level art students (Student Designers) in sculpture, engraving, graphic design, drawing and other visual arts, who are invited to create and submit new designs for selected coin and medal programs throughout the year. For the class of 2007, the United States Mint is seeking up to 10 Associate Designers and up to 6 Student Designers, to add to the existing pool of artists.
Applications for Associate Designers must be received by September 15, 2006. The Student Designer applications must be received by October 16, 2006.
