The 28th Annual Stark County High School Art Exhibition will be hosted again by the Canton Museum of Art with support from Cleveland State University, the Cleveland Institute of Art, Kent State’s School of Art, the Columbus College of Art and Design, and other local college art programs. The Exhibition will be on view from until April 7th 2019 in the lower galleries of the Museum.
All pieces in the exhibition are original works by students who are a part of local schools’ curriculum and are chosen by the art instructors of each school. Works in the Stark County High School Art Exhibition will be judge on both technical ability and originality of ideas. This is an excellent opportunity for all young, local artists in the school system to show off their abilities and for the community to view them.
Over one hundred pieces will be on display from the exhibition from a long list of local high schools. On April 6th, First Friday, an awards ceremony with light refreshments will be held from 5pm-8pm. College financial awards totaling more than $5,500 will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners as well as ten honorable mention awards. All winners will receive a scholarship for classes at the Canton Museum of Art’s School of Art. Admission will be free to all on this occasion.
