Artists from 4 to 64 are encouraged to submit their art work with the theme “Racism Hurts Everyone” for a juried art exhibit at the Clay center on April 27 to May 2, 2010. This is in part of the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism Day on April 30.
Artwork can vary from paintings, sketches, posters and photographs, as long as it is no larger than 11″ x 17″, it is eligible for exhibition. The artwork must show the artist’s interpretation of the theme or anything that embodies the message of eliminating racism and celebrating diversity.
The artworks on exhibit will be judged by a panel based on creativity and representation of the theme. The artwork will also be judged per cateogory based on age. There will be three winners for each category, and an overall “Best in Show” prize. The winning piece will be featured in the cover of the Spring 2010 YWCA newsletter.
Deadline for submission of entries is on April 15, 2010 at 5pm. Submitted pieces will be exhibited at the Clay Center’s main ticketing lobby from April 27 to May 2. Winners will be announced on April 30, at the Eliminating Racism Art Contest Open House at 4:30pm.
