NATIONAL ART CONTEST WINNERS ANNOUNCED
"Delectable Delights Theme is Food
for Thought and Art"
A remarkable number of gifted artists submitted artwork for the 2015 National Art Competition, sponsored by the Chinese American Citizens Alliance and the Chinese American Museum. This biennial national competition provides students of all ages the opportunity to express their creativity, originality and extraordinary artistic skills using a variety of distinct mediums including oil, watercolors, acrylic, crayon, pen, pencil and charcoal.
The goal of the competition is to encourage students to reflect on their cultural heritage, promote diversity and celebrate the past and continuing contributions of Chinese Americans.
Students from across the country submitted entries on this year’s theme, “Delectable Delights.”
An important part of the rich Chinese cultural heritage can be found in its food. Chinese take great pride in their culinary tradition, passing it from generation to generation – from the savory to the sweet, and from the basic, home-style cooking to extravagant banquet delicacies. What is your favorite Chinese food memory?
