The National Arts Program® exhibit and competition is designed to honor the creativity which lies in us all.

This annual program, sponsored by the National Arts Program Foundation, invites residents of Santa Rosa or City of Santa Rosa employees and their families to enter one piece of artwork into a community exhibition at the Finley Community Center. Santa Rosa is one of over 90 venues across the country hosting National Arts Program exhibits, and we are celebrating our 17th year!
