CRT's 2020 National Arts Program® Show

Submit Work Through February 7th!

Capital Community College
950 Main Street
Hartford, CT CT 06103
United States

Event Description:

For nearly 30 years, the Community Renewal Team (CRT) has hosted an annual National Arts Program® (NAP), providing an opportunity for all local artists to showcase their art within the community. Youth, teens, amateurs, intermediate and professional artists from both Middlesex and Hartford Counties are invited to submit their work now for the 2020 art show, which will be on display at Capital Community College (950 Main Street in Hartford, CT) from February 13 – March 2, 2020.

Cash prizes will be awarded in six different categories.

For the second year in a row, this show includes a special category for submissions: "Teens Looking Out for Teens" (ages 13 – 18). Students – either individually or as a group – may submit a piece of art that evokes a greater understanding of the social issues affecting teens today.

All forms of visual arts are accepted for this show; from paintings and photographs to sculptures, crafts and textiles.

Artists can submit their work for free to this show. By removing the financial and commercial requirements of most exhibitions, this special show creates a sense of community and artistic fulfillment for all participants.

The deadline to register for the 2020 National Arts Program in Central Connecticut is Friday, February 7, 2020.
