The Andy Warhol Museum hosts The National Society of Arts & Letters’ National Visual Art Competition.

This exhibition will include the first place competition winners from all 18 chapters of the NSAL, including Pennsylvania.  The national winner will receive a $15,000 prize, as well as a reserved spot in the exhibition at The Warhol.  The exhibition is on view May 17 – June 2, 2013.

The NSAL Pittsburgh Chapter closed applications for the Pennsylvania Visual Art Career Awards Competition on April 1.  All participants were required to submit artwork using one of several specific techniques, including relief printmaking, intaglio printmaking, screen printmaking, monoprint, lithography, or computer graphics.  Third place will receive $750, second place will receive $1,500, and the first place winner will receive $3,000 and a spot in the National Visual Art Competition.

In addition to hosting the exhibition of winning artwork, Tresa Varner, curator of education and interpretation at The Warhol, will be among the judges for the Pittsburgh Chapter competition. The Warhol’s Director, Eric Shiner, will be one of the selected judges for the national competition in May.
