56th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition
May 16, 2017 — July 23, 2017
Organized by the Arkansas Arts Center
In 1961, the Arkansas Arts Center hosted the first statewide Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition to ensure learning, inspiration, and creative expression. Now in its sixth decade, this annual children’s art exhibition showcases artwork by students in kindergarten through 12th grade from across the state. Hundreds of works in a variety of media are juried by a professional panel and a chief juror selects a "Best of Class" and two "Honorable Mentions" for each grade. Monetary awards are provided to each winner's school. Each year, selections from the exhibition travel to schools and other venues throughout the state as part of the Arkansas Arts Center's State Services program.
Thank you for taking the time to enter the 56th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center. Your participation ensures the continued success of the exhibition. The deadline for entries was February 24, 2017.
