Virtual (See event details)

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted our country, state, and local communities. While the building may be closed, we are still “here” and have been working diligently to produce exciting virtual exhibitions and content.

The Community Folk Art Center (CFAC), in partnership with the Syracuse Chapter of the Links, Inc. presents the 49th Annual Teenage Competitive Art Exhibition.

About the Annual Teenage Art Competition

In 1972, three high school art teachers, Charles Wollowitz, Roberta Braen, and Nancy Peck of Nottingham and Corcoran High Schools, with Herb Williams, Director of CFAC, engaged in a strategic planning process that led to the development of an art show and competition in response to a need to provide competition and exhibition opportunities for African American, Asian, Latinx, Native American and other underrepresented students attending high schools in the Syracuse area. Subsequently, the Syracuse Chapter of The Links, Incorporated in conjunction with the Syracuse City School District joined CFAC and art teachers from the local schools and community to continue these efforts.
