Corn Hill Arts Festival and MVP Health Care Encourage Young Artists to Apply

The Corn Hill Neighborhood Association is excited to once again welcome MVP Health Care as a festival supporter and presenter of the 13th Annual Emerging Artists Expo. The expo will take place July 8th and July 9th at the 55th Annual Corn Hill Arts Festival, presented by ESL Federal Credit Union. 

“Young artists play a vital role in enriching our community and creating important conversations,” said MVP Health Care’s President and CEO, Chris Del Vecchio. “The feelings they share and the ideas they express are inspiring and they challenge us all to grow. These young artists are truly changing the face of Rochester and MVP is so proud to support their creative influence by sponsoring this year’s expo.”

The expo is open to individuals between the ages of 15 and 23. Those selected to participate are provided with a 10’x10’ booth space and tent as well as publicity, exposure, and access to a central payment station. 

“We are excited to have MVP back once again as the sponsor of the expo, “ said Bill Belecz, 2023 Corn Hill Arts Festival Chair. “This expo is just one of the many ways the Corn Hill Arts Festival helps support the arts in our community, and their support and dedication has created opportunities for countless young artists across the region.”

The festival committee judges the work of participants and awards prize money based on work, ideas, and overall booth presentation. The experience provides each artist with feedback and  valuable experience they can add to their resumés. 

To apply, interested artists must complete an application and pay a small application fee online by June 7; accepted applicants will be notified by June 14. For the 2023 festival the Emerging Artists Expo will be located on Eagle Street. Visitors to the festival are encouraged to stop in, converse with, and purchase one-of-a-kind work from the artists.
