The annual Scholastic Art Competition + Exhibition (Jan 9 to Feb 5) recognizes creative achievement in Cuyahoga County students.
Starting January 9, come see the work of northeast Ohio’s most talented art and design students at the 2011 Scholastic Art Competition + Exhibition – Cuyahoga County Region, a celebration of the artistic talent of local teenagers.
More than 500 award-winning works of art from seventh- to twelfth-grade students at 60 local schools will be on view at the Institute’s Reinberger Galleries this month. The exhibition opens with a public reception on Sunday, January 9 and will run until Saturday, February 5.
For 31 years, the Institute has hosted the Scholastic Art Competition to recognize creative achievement in area students grades 7–12. A panel of local professional artists and art educators was organized by the Institute to jury the exhibit and select the awarded pieces from nearly 1,700 entries.
The young artists compete for cash prizes, medals and scholarships. Students who receive Portfolio Awards and Gold Key Awards will continue to the national competition held in the spring in New York City. Past winners of the national competition include Truman Capote, Robert Redford, Andy Warhol and Sylvia Plath.
Since its start in 1923, The Scholastic Art Competition has become the most prestigious recognition program for teen artists in the United States. The program has acted as a venue for the community to view the exceptional artwork of public, private, parochial and homeschooled students. It also emphasizes the importance of developing and encouraging creativity and the limitless opportunities available through an art education.
For more information, you can check out the list of this year’s winners (PDF) or visit the official website for the Scholastic Art Awards. Images of the regional winners’ work will be posted soon to CIA’s Flickr page.
