a juried exhibition to showcase exceptional visual art by current community college students. any and all media, traditional or non-traditional. show your best work!
historically, the flat rate exhibition requires artwork to be mailed to us in a usps flat rate box. this year, as we adapt to the changes of covid-19 the exhibition is going fully virtual, meaning the work is very flat and doesn’t need to be snail-mailed to us!

connect with art faculty, college admissions counselors, current and prospective students.
location: on zoom!
