Young Art 2013: The Story of Me
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 focuses on art that explores personal identity. Students artwork tells "The Story of Me" through artistic representations depicting their culture, traditions, family, friends, memories, experiences, or physical appearance through portraiture, narrative, masks, and more.
Student artwork has been formally juried and presented alongside, and in conversation with, works from the Museum's Permanent Collection at The San DiegoMuseum of Art and the Center for Community and Cultural Arts at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation.
An audio tour presenting perspectives from student artists will accompany the exhibition along with a bevy of related events. In addition, May Family Drop-In days focus on the theme individual identity, and involve the creation of projects inspired by the exhibition.
Listen to the audio tour on your mobile device or borrow an ipod from the front desk.
