Worcester Art Museum is excited to again host a regional Youth Art Month this year!

In addition to the MAEA statewide YAM exhibit to be held at the Transportation Building in Boston, Youth Art Month will be celebrated at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on Cape Cod, in Berkshire County and the Worcester Art Museum will host a Central Massachusetts regional exhibit for those in the greater Worcester area. This means students will have the opportunity to participate in up to four exhibits this year all over the state! These are wonderful opportunities to make the public aware of the importance of quality art programs in our schools!
