VSA Emerging Young Artists Program



Interchange Theme

This call for art asks artists to explore the connection of different ideas and pathways to each other. How does your art interact with your disability identity and the world? How are you initiating dialogue with others?

About VSA Emerging Young Artists Program

The VSA Emerging Young Artists Program, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program, showcases the work of visual artists with disabilities, ages 16-25, who reside in the United States.


Fifteen winning artists are selected by a jury. Each winning artist receives a $5,000 award and has one of their submitted pieces selected to travel in a year-long national exhibition. Winning artists are required to attend an all-expenses-paid professional development workshop at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. February 26-29, 2024.

Application Process

The application deadline is August 18, 2023 and winning artists will be notified by September 29, 2023. Artwork will be judged by a panel of experts who are looking for artwork that demonstrates a high level of skill, expresses original ideas, and reflects the Interchange theme. To request an accommodation or receive the application materials in an alternate format, contact Wynsor Taylor, WRTaylor@kennedy-center.org no later than August 4, 2023.
