PURPOSE OF THE ARTS CHALLENGE: The Community Arts Challenge is a juried competition to encourage creativity within the Cortland County community and enhance the profile of the Center for the Arts and the Cultural Council of Cortland County as venues for local artists and performers. The Challenge is an opportunity to use one’s artistic talents to communicate a common theme. The artistic theme for the 2017 Arts Challenge is “faces.” The exhibits and performances that result from this competition will be open to the public to celebrate the many ways our area artists interpret the topic of “faces.” Prizes will be awarded in each of six major entry categories. There will also be a “People's Choice” visual-art award for the work that gets the most votes from visitors to the Arts Challenge exhibit.
