Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition

Organized by the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts

For 60 years, the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts has opened a door for young people to showcase their artistic talents and skills through the annual Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition. Arkansas students – from kindergarten through 12th grade – submit works of art in a variety of media. A grand juror awards a Best of Class and two Honorable Mentions per grade, as well as the Ray Smenner Award for Painting and the Mid-Southern Watercolorists Award for Watercolor. The Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition also rewards each winner’s schools to benefit their art programs and encourage further engagement with the arts.

In 2020, the 59th Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition moved to an online format. This year’s online gallery will be expanded to include more artworks on view, allowing more students to see their hard work on display.

60th Young Arkansas Artist Exhibition

The online exhibition opens May 15, 2021
