The International Violin Competition of Indianapolis (IVCI) is pleased to announce the 2018 Juried Exhibition of Student Art (JESA), one of the most far-reaching multi-disciplinary art projects for grades one through twelve in the state of Indiana. Held in conjunction with the Quadrennial International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, JESA involved over 21,000 school children and 160 art teachers throughout the state in 2014. JESA is one of the few programs that awards a cash prize to each school or sponsoring organization of the Grand Award Winners as well as to the students. The IVCI will award $10,000 in prizes to outstanding artists and their schools or sponsoring organizations.
The program was designed to affirm the highest standards of visual arts; to encourage the pursuit of visual arts as a career; to help integrate the disciplines of the performing and the visual arts; to increase community support for the arts; and to heighten student awareness of the IVCI and its cultural importance to the entire state.
