OVERVIEW

Emerge! is an art festival presented by Hannan Center, open to emerging artists 55 years and older. The festival centers around a competition where artists are asked to submit up to two pieces of their best work to be judged by a jury of prominent arts professionals and also by a public vote of the arts community. Winners will be announced during a day of arts-focused activities at Hannan Center.

Hannan Center hosted the 2021 Emerge! Art Festival on Saturday, August 7, 2021. Over 100 pieces of artwork were submitted and then narrowed down by juror Misha McGlown to determine the top three awardees.  Additionally, 6,799 votes were cast for the People’s Choice Award.
