Piloted in 2018, the Massachusetts Amazing Emerging Artist Recognition Exhibit is a juried show for students of Massachusetts Art Education Association (MAEA) members in grades 9-12. This exhibition has been very successful with participation growing annually. Student entries are submitted digitally and judged by a panel of art educators. Selected works were exhibited at the State Transportation Building in Boston.
Due to the uncertainty brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the MAEA Recognitions Exhibit for 2021 will be a virtual exhibit, posted on the MAEA website. We see this as a real-life opportunity for students to express what is important to them in a visually powerful way. Presenting the exhibit online opens up the possibility of reaching a larger audience on a digital platform.
