For Los Angeles artists

The Mayor Tom Bradley Legacy Visual Art Competition (“Bradley Art Competition”) is being conducted as part of the Tom Bradley Centennial Year Project to honor the memory of Los Angeles’ longest serving (1973-1993) and first African American mayor who would have turned 100 in December 2017. Mayor Bradley’s historic leadership continues to have an unprecedented impact on the City of Los Angeles more than two decades after he completed five terms as mayor and more than 50 years in public service.

With the goal of exposing a new generation to the amazing story and inspiration of Mayor Bradley, the competition is designed to generate exciting student-produced artwork reflecting the Mayor’s legacy and the importance of civic engagement. Finalists’ art will be displayed at the historic Bullocks Wilshire landmark and possibly other civic and cultural venues in Los Angeles.
This free art competition is being coordinated by Southwestern Law School* in collaboration with the Tom and Ethel Bradley Foundation and the LA Valley College Department of Art, as well as additional educational partners such as the CSUN Department of Art.

* Mayor Bradley earned his law degree at Southwestern in 1956.
