VSA and Volkswagen Group of America announce the 2014 Emerging Young Artists Program Call for Entries.
Emerging young visual artists with disabilities, ages 16-25, are invited to reflect on the theme The Journey — internal and external, personal and communal, human and technological. Our journeys shape our aesthetic and environmental terrain and define our daily lives.
Fifteen artists will be selected to travel to Washington, D.C. for workshops and a reception on Capitol Hill. Selected work will tour nationally. With the generous support of Volkswagen, awards include a $20,000 grand prize, $10,000 for first place, $6,000 for second place, and 12 awards of excellence at $2,000 each.
For more information and to apply, visit VSA’s website. Deadline for entries is June 30, 2014.
