Winner’s Art Exhibited at the World Renowned VISION Festival

Announcing The Vision Festival’s First Poster Competition. We are accepting submissions through May 15th to be exhibited at this year’s Vision Festival. The Top 10 submissions will be exhibited at the festival, which will be held at Judson Memorial Church, NYC. We will print a limited number of posters of each of the winners and exhibit them at the festival. This will be a great opportunity for young artists to gain exposure at an internationally renowned event.

This year marks the Twentieth Anniversary of the Vision Festival. To celebrate this milestone Arts for Art (AFA) plans 6 days that sets the standard for creative FreeJazz music, dance, visual art and ideas, which embrace values that challenge and inform. Historically, AFA has dedicated one festival night to give recognition to a single, deserving artist for their lifetime of achievement. This year AFA celebrates all VISION artists, in particular those iconic NY artists whose creative voices have helped build our reputation as the world’s premier FreeJazz Festival. Vision Festival also acknowledges our longstanding relationship with Chicago’s legendary AACM artists, as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary!
