Apr 3 - Jul 31, 2020

Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation’s FIRST online exhibition!

Exhibition Details

Members of the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association (SSCA) serve as citizen ambassadors, creating networks and partnerships with eight sister cities around the world. Their Young Artists and Authors Showcase encourages Scottsdale teens to express the SSCA mission through original artwork and literature.

 


 

“One World: Out of Many, We Are One”  

In these times of uncertainty, isolation, and disruption, our communities struggle to maintain positive connections and optimism. Our friends and colleagues in sister cities around the world seem further away than ever. More than ever, we see the urgency for our nations to work together in harmony, lifting each other up, encouraging compassion, and defining resiliency.

Building bridges of international understanding and goodwill, members of the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association (SSCA) serve as citizen ambassadors, creating networks and partnerships with eight sister cities around the world. Through student programs and educational, cultural, and business exchanges, SSCA aims to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation—one individual, one community at a time.

The SSCA Young Artists and Authors Showcase encourages teens to express this mission through original artwork and literature. Scottsdale students are invited to interpret an annual theme and compete in the local showcase. Participating artists and award winners are celebrated through this exhibition, with the First Place winner advancing to the international competition in Washington, D.C. Winning entries at the international level are displayed at the Sister Cities International Conference and travel in a yearlong tour throughout the United States.

This year’s theme, “One World: Out of Many, We Are One,” asks students to explore creative ways that we create peace through people-to-people interaction. In what ways can different nations come together during a time of physical separation? We turn to our creative youth and their forward-thinking ideals to hopefully bring us closer to a unified world.

 

This exhibition is organized by the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association, Scottsdale Artists’ School, and Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation.
