Announcing Detour, the 2018-2019 VSA Emerging Young Artists Program competition and exhibition! The Detour call for art is now open and accepting submissions. Help us spread the word about this exciting opportunity for emerging young artists with disabilities, ages 16-25, and help us showcase art that takes us in new direction and celebrates the unexpected.
Please share this email about Detour with your colleagues (there’s a handy Forward button at the bottom of the email), and print out the linked flyer to post where students can see it. The VSA Emerging Young Artists Program specifically supports emerging artists with disabilities in their professional development and artistic growth.
Below is information about what winning artists will receive, when applications are due, and when winners will be announced. You can also view or download the 2017-2018 Electrify! catalog from our current cohort of winning artists, which will give you an idea of the kind of work we receive. For questions email Anne-Marie Walsh at email@example.com or call (202) 416-8823.
