Statewide YAM & Recognitions Exhibit 2019

Once again the statewide Youth Art Month Exhibit and the MAEA Recognition Exhibit were a huge success! Thank you to all who participated.

The combined exhibits featured close to 1000 incredible works of art from across the state. We estimate that between 1200 and 1500 people attended the Family Day Celebration, not to mention the hundreds of visitors that walk through the building daily, stopping to admire the work.

If you are free on Saturday March 30, we’d love your help taking down the exhibits. Find all the details and sign up to help today!

The work will come down the end of this week and should be back at your drop off sites no later than April 5. Please contact the teacher at your drop off location to arrange pick up of your work.

Teachers who dropped off in Boston – We have a pick up day scheduled at the State Transportation Building on Saturday, April 6 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Please contact us if this time does not work.  

Questions about either exhibit? Email our Youth Art Month Committee Chair Eleena Rioux at youthartmonth@massarted.com or our Recognitions Committee Chair Diana Woodruff at student_recognitions@massarted.com .
