The San Diego Museum of Art’s biennial student exhibition Young Art has the extraordinary distinction of being the longest running program in the history of the Museum. Now in its 45th year, Young Art is a juried exhibition that features the finest examples of artwork created by Kindergarten through 12th grade students in San Diego County.
The theme of this year’s Young Art exhibition is Breaking Traditions, taking inspiration from the Museum’s collection of Art of the 20th Century. Educators and students are encouraged to express innovation and creativity through the use of color, line and shape, while considering the important changes that occurred in the 20th Century that broke with traditional ideas of what art should look like. Student works submitted for consideration should be inspired by the Museum’s permanent collection of Art of the 20th Century masterpieces, ranging from (but not limited to) Abstraction, Cubism and Surrealism.
Young Art 2019 will be accompanied by several programs and interactive activities including a student-led exhibition tour and family-friendly activities.
This exhibition has free admission inside Gallery 14/15, located near the entrance to Panama 66.
