New York Youth Symphony – “First Art”

Information from their website:  Just as First Music commissions the nation’s best young composing talent, First Art seeks to give the same opportunity to emerging artists and illustrators. Each season, a young American artist receives a commission of $1,000 to produce a new visual illustration celebrating the spirit of music.

Online submissions for the 2014/2015 season’s commission must be received by 5 pm on January 31, 2014. There is a $25 application fee.

The applicant must be an US citizen (or non-citizen lawfully and permanently residing in the United States) who is between the ages of 12 and 22 on the application deadline date.

The following styles will be considered:

  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Graphic art
  • Photography

The work to be commissioned must be previously unpublished and not publicly viewed, and will become the property of the New York Youth Symphony. Acknowledgment of the artist will be made when the artwork is used.

The artist will be expected to work in cooperation with the New York Youth Symphony Executive Director to produce an acceptable work. The artist will be provided with samples of all pieces using the artwork.

First Art is graciously underwritten by the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation.
