FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Cultural Council invites the community to view works of art submitted for the 2018 Framingham Cultural Council Student Art Competition from April 4 to 30 in the Costin Room of the main Framingham Public Library.

The competition was open to students 11-18 as of January 1, 2018.
