The Seneca County Duncanson Celebration Committee is sponsoring a coloring contest for Seneca County 2nd and 3rd graders to celebrate the life and achievement of 19th century African- American landscape painter, Robert S. Duncanson. Duncanson was born in Fayette, NY in 1821 and became what is considered to be one of the first and finest American landscape painter.
Seneca County school districts have been invited to participate by returning coloring sheets of Duncanson’s 1859 painting “Landscape with Rainbow” rendered by The Artist’s Gallery in Seneca Falls, NY. Entries must be returned by March 25, 2022. Winners of the contest will be announced in April, 2022.
Contest entry coloring sheets and rules can be received by contacting Emilie Sisson at [email protected] or by calling (315)521-5853.
