The Midwest Museum of American Art is pleased to announce the opening of its annual observance of Youth Art Month on Sunday, March 8, 2020.
This year marks the 41st year that an exhibit featuring student artwork has been shown at the Midwest Museum of American Art. Selected by art educators from five area high schools 151 students were selected to exhibit 187 works of art in all media. This observance provides an opportunity for students, grades 9 through 12, who have realized success in the visual arts to have their work exhibited in a museum setting. This exhibit focuses on the vitally important work carried out in the area of art education throughout the year; it is unique because it seeks to explore topics in art education such as our cognitive and emotional health, both our self and visual awareness, as well as, an appreciation of our individual differences.
The Midwest Museum of American Art would like to think the sponsors of this exhibit for their generosity. Sponsors for Youth Art 2020 exhibit include: City of Elkhart-Mayor Rod Roberson, Elkhart Central Art Cafe, Elkhart Evening Optimists, Elkhart Kiwanis Club, Elkhart Lions Club, Elkhart Luncheon Optimists, State Farm Insurance – Rocky Enfield, Welch Packaging Group, Stuart Basquin (Elkhart), Abby Thomas (Bristol), Ken & Kathy Zienty, (Goshen).
