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 2020 Emerge! Art Festival on Saturday, September 19, 2020. Seventy-seven works were submitted and then narrowed down by a jury of professional artists to determine the top three awardees.  Additionally, 6,667 votes were cast for the People’s Choice Award.
