Youth Art Month – 2020 Exhibit

UPDATE ON Boston ARTWORK

All work that was on display at the Boston exhibit has been returned to drop-off locations. If you haven’t received an email about picking up your student’s artwork, please check with the teacher you dropped work off with. If you are unsure who you dropped off your work to,  or have other questions please email youthartmonth@massarted.com.

Update on Worcester Art Museum Exhibit

While the galleries at the Worcester Art Museum are open, the Cafe area, Lancaster Lobby, and Higgins Education Wing are still closed.  The work is in the process of being organized and packaged by teacher/school/district. Pick up information will be sent out and will be available on specific days in November.  If anyone is unable to pick up the artwork in November it will be put in storage until the Higgins Education Wing is open to the public. The Wing will likely not be opening until February 2021–though it may be later.

If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Buck at [email protected]org.
