Just as First Music commissions the nation’s best young composing talent, First Art seeks to reward emerging artists and illustrators. Each season, a young American artist receives a juried prize of $1,000 for a new visual illustration celebrating the spirit of music as exemplified by the New York Youth Symphony.
Applications are now open for the 2015/16 season. Please apply here: https://NYYS.formstack.com/forms/firstart. The deadline is June 24, 2015.
First Art is graciously underwritten by the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation.
