Featuring many of Westchester’s most recognized, most active, and most cutting-edge visual artists, it is an exhibition celebrating the diversity and vibrancy of the county’s creative community.

As part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration, ArtsWestchester recognized 50 outstanding local artists, in all disciplines, with our 50 for 50 Award. Winners were selected through a rigorous nomination and panelist process. They represent a wide breathe of contemporary artistic expression, working in media from photography to sculpture, performance art to digital art, painting to installation.
