Event Description

Join us Friday, January 11, 2018 for an Opening Reception for Art.Write.Now from 4:30-6:30PM.

Produced and presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, this exhibition showcases a selection of works from the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards—inspiring & innovative work by teens from all across the country.

Teenagers today are coming of age in a time of accelerated social and technological change—making the thoughtful self-exploration of their worlds and lives even more profound. How do they grow into adulthood while ideas about gender and identity are being reexamined? What do they think of the future as the climate changes and the global population grows in size and mobility? We honor these artistic explorations as a means for young people to dream and design a world we can all share.

Explorations of beauty and identity, sharp social commentaries, and acute observations of nature and society populate this curated exhibition. As a collection of works, the Art. Write. Now. Tour 2018-19 presents valuable insights into the minds of teens today.
