Young Art is the Museum's biennial exhibition of K-12 student artwork from San Diego County schools. Young Art 2013: The Story of Me will focus on art that explores the subject of individual identity. Students will tell the story of themselves through artistic representations of their culture, traditions, family, friends, memories, experiences, or physical appearance in the form of portraits, narratives, art journals, masks and costumes, collage, and more. Works will include objects, symbols and/or imagery that reveal the identity of the artist, and may be executed in two-dimensional or three-dimensional media, including, but not limited to drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, video, and mixed media art. Student art is formally juried, and then presented in the Museum’s galleries alongside artwork from our permanent collection.
Integral to this year’s exhibition will be a series of museum public programs in spring 2013, talks by student artists, an exhibition reading area with books related to the exhibition and to works of art in the Museum’s collections.
The exhibition Young Art 2013: The Story of Me is organized by The San Diego Museum of Art. Support for the exhibition is provided by The San Diego Musuem of Art's Artists Guild, the Members of the The San Diego Museum of Art, and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Program. Institutional support for the Museum is provided by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.
