100th Anniversary Call for Art Challenge

A Legacy of Love and Service

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the presence of Catholic Charities in the Syracuse diocese, we invite local and regional artists to submit works of art that reflect the agency’s mission of service throughout our history, in the present day and as a vision for the future. Works should also reflect the 7 Pillars of Catholic Social Teaching that are the foundation of our mission. This will be a juried art event and exhibition featuring 2D and 3D original fine art.

All artists accepted into the competition will be invited to an Exhibition Brunch/Reception on August 20th, 11am to 2pm at Traditions at the Glen. The Exhibition Brunch will recognize artists receiving awards as well as all participating artists.

Select works will be chosen for awards and permanent display and installation throughout Catholic Charities facilities. Artwork that is not awarded a prize/selected for installation within Catholic Charities of Broome County facilities may be exhibited for sale at the Exhibition/Reception. A 30% donation to Catholic Charities of Broome County is suggested on sales.
