Youth Art Month


        The Wiregrass Museum of Art (WMA) is excited to present its upcoming Youth Art Month exhibition. Since 1991, WMA has participated in this annual event which brings awareness to the value of arts education. Youth Art Month is a nationally recognized event, in which the WMA asks area public, private and home school students, Grades K-12, to send in their best art works for a chance to exhibit in the Wiregrass Museum of Art during the month of March.

        This year, the Wiregrass Museum of Art is partnering with the office of the 2nd Congressional District in its Congressional Art Competition. Work that is entered into the 2013 Youth Art Month exhibition at the WMA will automatically be considered for the Congressional Art Competition as long as the submitted work meets the stated criteria. Since 1982, the U.S. House of Representatives have sponsored this nation-wide competition for high school arts. Through the support of both The Congressional Art Competition and the Wiregrass Museum's of Art, Youth Art Month has served to promote and encourage the artistic achievements of our nation's youth.

       Project Installation, in its fourth year at WMA, allows high school students, in teams of six, to compete in creating installation art throughout the museum's galleries. Locked in the museum overnight, students are challenged to think creatively when creating innovative installations in just 24 hours.
