The Governors Young Artist Exhibition

Dear Arkansas Educators,

Governor and Mrs. Hutchinson have announced the 2016 Governor's Young Artist Exhibit Competition, in conjunction with the Governor's Mansion Association.  Beginning January 4, 2016, high school students from across the state are invited to submit their artwork based on the 2016 theme, BRIDGES.

Facing challenges is a part of life.  Challenges may be physical, emotional, cultural, personal, institutional, or in the area of communications.  What challenges do we face in everyday life, or in the world around us?  Where are the barriers?  What might be the bridges?  Here are a few prompts that students may want to consider:
1. What may be a barrier that prevents movement, understanding, or connection?
2. What means, connections, or structures can bridge obstacles or create new pathways?
3. Where can bridges be found?  When can bridges find you?

For complete rules and procedures, please see http://www.ararted.org/uploads/1/2/8/9/12892775/2016_governors_young_artist_competition.pdf

For the submission form, please see http://www.ararted.org/uploads/1/2/8/9/12892775/2016_governors_young_artist_information_form.pdf

All entries must be emailed to sharon.morris@governor.arkansas.gov no later than 6 p.m., February 26, 2016.
