35th Annual Young Artists and Authors Showcase: “ClimateScape: Resilient Cities for Tomorrow’s Climate”
Suffolk Sister Cities International sponsors an annual Young Artists and Authors Showcase that help foster a sense of global citizenship and goodwill for young students. This year’s theme is “ClimateScape: Resilient Cities for Tomorrow’s Climate.” Youth from member communities are invited to delve into the pressing challenges of climate change and its profound impact on cities. The theme encourages students to unleash their creativity and showcases the transformative power of resilient cities that can adapt and flourish in the face of a changing climate. Through breathtaking artworks and captivating narratives, we aim to vividly depict urban landscapes that embrace eco-consciousness, inclusivity, and forward-thinking solutions. From roof gardens and green infrastructures to diverse communities united in sustainability, “ClimateScape” celebrates the resilience of our cities while fostering a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow.
The Opening Reception and Award Ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 29, 2023, from 6:30-8pm, at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts. The exhibit—consisting of painting, drawing, mixed media, digital art, photography, music, poetry, and essays—will be on view from February 29-March 23, 2024. Galleries are open Tuesday-Saturday, 11am to 4pm.
*Winners from this juried exhibit of both artwork and writers will go on to compete with students throughout the country. Suffolk has two Sister Cities: Suffolk County, England and Oderzo, Italy.
Sister Cities International aims to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time.
