Opening Reception: Sunday, March 2, 3-5pm
Exhibition: March 2 – 9, 2014
Young Artists, an annual program for local student artists in its 31st year, gives aspiring artists an opportunity to participate in all aspects of a museum exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art. The exhibition features artwork by nearly 400 local high school seniors from more than 40 high schools in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Dutchess, and Fairfield counties (see addendum for list of participating high schools). The students not only create the artwork, but also work under the guidance of museum and art professionals to organize, publicize, curate and mount their own exhibition.
Wednesday, February 26 and Thursday, February 27, 9am – 3pm
Student artists will take part in an exhibition installation, an exciting two-day process, during which students from each participating high school take on the roles of curators, exhibition designers, and installers. Working alongside professional staff, they will fulfill the daunting task of mounting an exhibition of nearly 400 artworks.
