The exhibit runs from Feb. 28 to March 4. The optional theme of this year’s exhibit is “My Social Concern” and all students from kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible to enter the competition. Submissions must be made by art educators who are members of NYSATA and are limited to two submissions per teacher. Artwork must be two-dimensional and no larger than 26 inches by 30 inches, including the mandatory mat or mounting and any optional attached written statement. Additionally, the mat or mount for the artwork should be made of lightweight mat or bristol board (do not use colored paper, foam core, canvas stretchers or frames) and all submissions need to be labeled according to the guidelines on NYSATA’s Web site.
