What would a world without racism look like?  That question was posed to artists and students by the YWCA of Charleston in their recent “A World Without Racism” art contest.  Artists from kindergarten through adulthood were asked to visualize a world without racism and share their vision with the world through visual art.  Artworks ranged from pencil drawings to mixed-media pieces, paintings, and photographs, and were juried by age groups.

Young artist Quinci Day Shavers took top honors in the exhibit with her portrait of Newly-elected President Obama titled “And We Did.”   Her entry will be printed on the cover of the YWCA newsletter.
