York Community Art Scholars Exhibition

Engaging the community through the arts.

York College of Pennsylvania’s annual York Community Art Scholars Exhibition (YCASE) celebrates the art produced by area high school students and provides promising young artists from York area schools with opportunities for advanced education, a collegial space for honing artistic skills, and the chance to work with local leaders to advance the cultural offerings of York.

Each year, local high school artists from throughout York County participate in the YCASE programs, including the downtown Art Walk, Finalist Exhibition, and exclusive workshops. Participating student artists are eligible for cash awards, gift certificates to Downtown York arts venues, and one $20,000 DelliCarpini Community Art Scholarship to study an arts-related field at York College of Pennsylvania.
