Organized biennially, Young at Art presents works of art by MMSD students in kindergarten through grade 12. The exhibition that will be open from Feb. 11 - April 23, is the result of a long-standing collaboration between the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) and the school district’s Arts Education Department.
For the exhibition, each of Madison’s public school art teachers is invited to submit up to three works of art for the exhibition, including individual works as well as those made collaboratively. The resulting exhibition showcases a full range of subject matter, technique, and art mediums – from drawing, painting, and collage to photography, metals, ceramic, fiber, and new media arts. Young at Art calls attention to children’s creative potential and to the scope and variety of individual expression. The exhibition also highlights the high caliber of art instruction in Madison’s public schools and the interdisciplinary nature of art education. The exhibition reception on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 3:00-4:30pm in the MMoCA atrium and gallery will feature a performance by East High School’s Jazz Orchestra.
