The George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts (GRFA) has announced its call for entries for the 2019 Art Contest, marking the foundation's 10th anniversary of the statewide program. The contest is open to all Louisiana high school juniors and seniors. Applications will be accepted until January 18, 2019.

This year's theme is the cosmos. Applicants are asked to explore the wonder, discovery, and mystery of the cosmos through an original work of art. 

A group of 15 finalists will share $45,000 in college scholarships. Following the scholarship award ceremony in the spring of 2019, the 15 winning entries will travel on public view for one year as an exhibition at museums and cultural venues across Louisiana. For more information on the contest, visit
