There's a seat at the table for anyone with rooted interest in the future of arts, culture and community in our state.

The VSA Emerging Young Artists Program, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program, recognizes and showcases the work of emerging young artists with disabilities, ages 16-25, living in the United States.

Fifteen artists will be selected by jury, with award amounts ranging from $2,000 to $20,000. Selected winning artwork will travel in a yearlong national exhibition. Winning artists will receive an all-expenses-paid professional development workshop at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, June 5.
