The Scholastic Art competition is sponsored by the College for Creative Studies. All selected work will be on display from 2/10/14 – 3/7/14. The works are adjudicated and selected for Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention Awards, American Vision Nominations and Best of Show Portfolios.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards has an impressive legacy dating back to 1923. Over the years, the Awards have grown to become the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the nation’s largest source of scholarships for creative young artists and writers. A noteworthy roster of past winners includes Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King, John Updike, and many more.
