Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Cultural Enrichment program invites VUMC and Vanderbilt University employees and their families to participate in The National Arts Program Exhibit, an artists’ exhibition and contest.

The contest is designed to give artists, at all skill levels, an uninhibited opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional manner and to compete for cash prizes. All framed artwork submitted (including photography) will be entered into the contest, providing it meets basic criteria.

The exhibit will be featured on the gallery wall at Vanderbilt Health 100 Oaks from Sept. 1, 2011 through Jan. 3, 2012. It will be judged by professional artists and visual art professionals in amateur, intermediate, professional and youth classifications.

Registration is free. The deadline to register is Aug. 23 and must be done online.

One entry per person, please.

Visit The National Arts Program for complete details and to register.
