21st Annual Spirit Is Ageless Art & Writing Contest

April 8, 2021 | Arts & Music

We are thrilled to announce that our annual tradition continues with the official launch of our 21st Annual Spirit Is Ageless Art & Writing Contest! We believe creative expression and the exploration of the fine arts have never been more important. The past year was a time of reflection. People found comfort in creating and journaling.  They seized the newfound free time to learn or develop their skills.

Special accommodations were made to facilitate art in-take this year to adhere to current COVID-19 protocols and protect the health and safety of everyone involved. This year, a virtual “stroll” of the gallery is offered via the link below and the Artists and Writers Awards Program will be streamed live on June 25.  Join us via Zoom at 2:00pm Central Daylight Time by clicking HERE!
