There is no size restriction, presentation requirement, medium specification or quantity limitation.

YAC Members are diverse in their practice, ranging from quilters, painters, and sculptors to poets, performers, and video artists. Members are encouraged to think outside of the box with their submissions. Accommodations for performances at the opening reception can be made with prior notice to the Executive Director. Documentation of public art projects, transcripts from creative projects, and other arts-related materials will be accepted to exhibit, pending approval from the Executive Director.
