Northwestern High School Juried Art Exhibition



Works of art by area high school students will be on display in the university library beginning Friday, February 10th, 2012. The show will run for one week.

This exhibition is open to students enrolled in grades 9-12 in any public or private high school.

Two-Dimensional artwork (painting, drawing, photography, collage, etc.) and three-dimensional artwork (sculpture, textile work, assemblage) is eligible for entry.

Artwork will be considered for exhibition by a jury of two faculty members on the staff of the Studio Art program at Northwestern. Work will be judged on both formal and conceptual qualities. Artwork must be the student's own; no "fan" artwork will be accepted. The work must be original and not a copy or manipulation of an existing published work.
