ADC, Art Design Consultants, Inc. proudly sponsors ART COMES ALIVE (ACA), an annual fine art contest & exhibit that awards the brightest and best artists working in North America, in a variety of categories. It is a great opportunity for artists to be acknowledged for their talents, gain exposure and win purchase awards and gallery contracts.

Artists can submit up to four images of their work for consideration. Our prestigious jurors from across the country will cast their votes for the top artists who will be showcased in a final exhibit here in Cincinnati and awarded purchase awards, gallery contracts, publishing contracts, solos shows, publicity, and cash prizes.
