March 13 through April 10, 2022
The Midwest Museum of American Art is pleased to present Youth Art Month 2022.
This year marks the 42nd year that an exhibit featuring student artwork has been shown at the Midwest Museum of American Art. Selected by art educators from four area high schools 128 students were selected to exhibit 168 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.
