Young Artists High School Exhibition

Student Opportunities

This annual exhibition of high school seniors' artwork from member schools gives aspiring artists an opportunity to participate in all aspects of a museum exhibition. With the guidance of professionals, the young artists organize, publicize, curate, and mount their own exhibition. Modified plans are being developed to adhere to safety protocols while maintaining the integrity of the program. 

Since its founding, the Katonah Museum of Art has been dedicated to fostering a creative community. The annual Young Artists exhibition is one of the impactful programs that supports the growth of student artists in our community. With the goal of providing hands-on, insider museum experiences to aspiring artists, this program invites student involvement in the exhibition process from beginning to end. Under the guidance of Museum professionals, students take on the roles of graphic designer, curator, exhibition designer, and installer, as well as artist, as they work collaboratively to mount this momentous exhibition. 

Over 350 senior student artworks are exhibited from nearly 38 high schools in Westchester, Fairfield and Putnam counties. The works range in scale, concept, media and process, reflecting the diversity of expression in the emerging artists.
