56th Young Arkansas Artists

May 16, 2017 – July 23, 2017

Organized by the Arkansas Arts Center

Now in its fifth decade, this annual children's art exhibition showcases artwork by students in kindergarten through 12th grade from across the state. Works in a huge variety of media are juried by a professional panel and a chief juror selects a "Best of Class" and two "Honorable Mentions" for each grade. Monetary awards are provided to each winner's school. Each year, selections from the exhibition travel to schools and other venues throughout the state as part of the Arkansas Arts Center's State Services program.
