About the Exhibtion

The annual Voertman Competition at CVAD is a time-honored celebration of artistic achievement and promise. The Voertman Competition is a juried exhibition open to all currently enrolled CVAD students. Started in 1960 by Mr. Paul Voertman, family founder of Voertman’s store, the exhibition is juried each year by an accomplished arts professional and provides students with real-world experience. Since 1960, thousands of artists have exhibited their works and hundreds have received cash prizes sponsored by Voertman’s store.
