Awards Ceremony: Second Cervantes Drawing and Painting Contest for New Mexico Students
December 9, 2017
Instituto Cervantes, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and the Spanish Resource Center present the awards for a student drawing and painting contest to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the creation of Pablo Picasso’s Guernica and to celebrate the exhibition El Prado in Santa Fe—the U.S. debut of 92 full-scale reproductions of some of the greatest masterpieces from Madrid’s Museo del Prado.
Students in three age categories, ages 6-8, 9-11, and 12-15 were invited to submit original drawings depicting any subject matter relating to great Spanish or Latin American painters—Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Joan Miró, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, etc. Teachers were encouraged to introduce any of these artists in their classrooms. The drawings and paintings will be on display at the NHCC from December 9 through April 7, 2018.
A special grand prize of $500 will be awarded, with $300 going to the student and $200 to the school. First, second, and third prizes in each age category will also include monetary awards for both the student and the school ($200 for the student and $100 for the school for first place; $100 for the student and $100 for the school for second place; $100 for the student for third place). Fourth, fifth, and sixth place winners in each category will receive a medal of honor, courtesy of the Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque.
The exhibition of all artwork will open at 2 pm, with the winners announced at a Winter Ceremony at 3 pm. Prizes and certificates will be given out during the celebration; all participants will receive a participation certificate.
