SEEK SANCTUARY ART CONTEST WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Re-emerging as a community to show gratitude for sanctuary

In recent months, we have all discovered a new (or renewed) appreciation for nature and community. Artists of all ages were invited to share their artistic view of an outdoor sanctuary within the City of Rye inspired by nature.

Winners were announced on Saturday, November 14, 2020. Winners and “honorable mentions” will be exhibited at each sponsor location where & when possible. Stay tuned for specifics!
