Kansas Paraguay Partners, our southern partners CPK and the US-Paraguayan binational center (CCPA) are working together to conduct a national Paraguayan art competition. The focus is on young Paraguayan artists in the areas of painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography. The winner will receive English instruction (if necessary) through CCPA, travel to Kansas through an education and culture travel grant and work with artists in Kansas. Amber Hansen a Lawrence artist, University of Kansas instructor and KPP member traveled to Paraguay through a POA travel grant to participate in the judging of the contest. Below is a poster for the event.
