Every year, we coordinate an exhibit with area high school to recognize the artistic accomplishments of area youth. The Scholastic Art Exhibit provides both teachers and their students with a great opportunity to view what’s happening at other schools, share ideas and techniques, and enjoy some well-earned recognition. It is an opportunity to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of our high school art teachers and honor the efforts of their students. The Scholastic Art Exhibit is held in early spring and features a one-day exhibition and judging (high school art teachers are each allowed to bring up to 40 pieces), followed by a month-long exhibit of first place and Best of Show winners. The one-day exhibit rotates among Livingston County high schools and Best of Show and First Place winners will have their work displayed in the Livingston Arts Center on Murray Hill during regular gallery hours.
Livingston Arts awards up to three $200 scholarships to seniors who are planning on attending college in an arts or arts-related field. The pieces in this show will be their submissions and the judges will pick our scholarship winners. Students are nominated for consideration by their teachers.
Our 2015 Scholastic Exhibit is currently on display with a closing reception and scholarship award ceremony on April 25.
