Mosaic of young artists

    Art in all of its forms is a powerful avenue of self-expression. The Commission is inviting young people ages 13-18 to submit artwork that explores social issues in their communities. Accepted artworks will be displayed online in a virtual art exhibit in Fall 2020. Deadline for submissions: August 26, 2020.
