CCAC’s 11th Annual Golden Ticket, and the first Golden Ticket exhibition held entirely outdoors, features diverse, talented artists living or working within a 25-mile radius of the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. Due to ongoing public health concerns, and in an effort to activate public spaces, the Clifton Cultural Arts Center has installed accepted artworks on the perimeter of Rawson Woods Bird Preserve, as well as in an adjacent front yard on Middleton Avenue in the Gaslight District of Clifton. CCAC has reproduced all accepted two-dimensional works on weather-resistant substrates, and all of the work will remain al fresco for the duration of the exhibit. Winners will be announced on the first night of the exhibition. Over $1500 in cash prizes will be awarded for Best in Show (for whom CCAC will also host a solo exhibition), second and third place, and honorable mention.
