The Contemporary Arts Center’s Teen Council (C-YA) is inviting teens from all over to submit their artwork for a summer art show titled Please Hold. With the cancelation of our famed Art Prom, the C-YA council felt it was important to create a resource for young adults to express themselves and feel included in our art community.
During these last few months we’ve had many disruptions, both big and small. So much has been put on pause as we reprogram ourselves and create new routines. While we process sadness, loss and monotony, there are also valuable moments of clarity as we appreciate the small things that bring us together. We are looking for artwork that reflects the highs and lows of life during this time; the rituals and practices that keep us sane; the struggles and strengths of cohabitation; and, the changing relationships we have with the world outside.
So much of the future is unknown, even the format of this show, but we’d like to be a little part of your unknown and give others a chance to respond, relate and reflect together.
