The Kurt Lattimer Aspiring Artist Award is a competition that challenges high school seniors from Madison County to tap into their creative selves. Students must create a visual piece of art depicting where they see themselves five years after graduation.


We believe this community has many young, talented individuals who need something that will motivate and inspire them. We hope this competition will challenge students to share their talents and promote art in Madison County for years to come.


Please note this competition is not limited to art students. We hope to reach out to ALL high school seniors slated to graduate in 2022. This includes home schooled and online students as well.


Now in its fifth year, this award commemorates the life of an amazing artist who left us too soon. The hope is this award will somehow keep his spirit alive in the hearts of many aspiring artists. This is something Kurt would be proud of!
