Young Artists High School Exhibition
February 5 – February 26, 2023
This annual exhibition of high school seniors' artwork, now in its 40th year, gives aspiring artists an opportunity to participate in many aspects of mounting a museum exhibition. With the guidance of professionals, the young artists organize, publicize, curate, and install their own exhibition.
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. Students take on the roles of graphic designer, curator, exhibition designer, and installer, as well as artist, as they work collaboratively with Museum professionals to mount this momentous exhibition.
Over 400 senior student artworks are exhibited from nearly 40 high schools in Dutchess, Fairfield, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties.. The works range in scale, concept, media and process, reflecting the diversity of expression in the emerging artists.
In honor of the 40th year, Young Artists alumni are asked to share updates about what they are up to, if they stayed in the arts field, and how Young Artists has impacted them. Please complete the Young Artists Alumni Form.
