Started in 1960 by Mr. Paul Voertman, founder of Voertman’s store, the exhibition is juried each year by an accomplished arts professional and provides students with real-world experience. Since 1960, thousands of artists have exhibited their works and hundreds have received cash prizes. Today, prizes are sponsored by Voertman’s store as well as individual donors and CVAD programs and are awarded by the juror at his or her discretion.
