Young at Art
March 16 through April 21, 2019
Organized biennially, Young at Art presents works of art by Madison Metropolitan School District students in kindergarten through grade 12. The exhibition is the result of a long-standing collaboration between MMoCA and the school district’s Fine Arts Division. Each of Madison’s public school art teachers is invited to submit up to three works of art for the exhibition; these may include individual works as well as those made collaboratively. This process allows for the full range of technique, subject matter, and mediums to be represented, including drawing, painting, collage, photography, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, fiber, found objects, and media arts. Young at Art calls attention to children’s creative potential and to the scope and variety of individual expression. It also highlights the high caliber of studio art instruction in Madison’s public schools, as well as the integration of art history and cross-cultural studies in the school art curriculum.
Generous support for the 2019 presentation of Young at Art has been provided by Nancy Mohs; National Guardian Life Insurance Company; Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company; Dane Arts; Darcy Kind and Marc Vitale; Perkins Coie LLP; Associated Bank; Total Administrative Services Corporation; RSM; and MMoCA Volunteers.
