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 local high school students and provides promising young artists 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, student artists from York-area high schools participate in the YCASE programs, including the downtown Art Walk, Finalist Exhibition at Marketview Arts, and exclusive workshops. Participating student artists are eligible for cash awards, and one student is selected to receive a $20,000 DelliCarpini Community Art Scholarship to study an arts-related field at York College of Pennsylvania.

YCASE is made possible through the generosity of The Shipley Family Foundation.
