Music Conservatory of Westchester's 'Colors of Music' Student Mural Contest Accepting Submissions

Music Conservatory of Westchester's 'Colors of Music' Student Mural Contest Accepting Submissions

See your art on a mural!

It’s the final chance for Westchester teen artists to enter the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s “Colors of Music” Student Mural Contest! The contest gives talented local students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to collaborate with a professional mural artist to create a mural on a public canvas representing the theme of “Multi-Cultural Music.”

Students also have the rare chance to have their artwork evaluated by an impressive group of art experts and community leaders from Westchester and New York City. The “Colors of Music” Student Mural Contest is open now for submissions from students in grades 7 through 12 residing in Westchester through Friday, May 11.

The “Colors of Music” Student Mural Contest is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The Conservatory is honored to be a recipient in this nationally competitive award program.

One winner and three runners up will be selected by a panel of art experts from Westchester and New York City. The winner will collaborate with mural artist Jonathan Villoch to create the final mural design. All four original student designs will be incorporated into the mural as well as displayed inside the Conservatory building. The “Colors of Music” Student Mural Contest gives visual presence to the sounds of music and encourages students of all backgrounds to share their creativity with the community.

Original art submissions will show the student’s interpretation of “Multi-Cultural Music” using a variety of mixed media of the student’s choice. Copyrighted material or images of celebrities will not be allowed. The Conservatory asks that students limit artwork to images of family friendly subject matter.

Student entrants must complete and send a submission form signed by their parents and a digital copy of their artwork to ColorsOfMusicContest@gmail.com
