Our Stories: High School Artists

May 5 – August 26, 2018

High school student artists from across the Tucson area, representing five school districts, are showcased in this special exhibition.

While we get to interact with youth visitors on field trips, in community programs, or with their families, we do not always get to see the results of their personal artistic pursuits and practices. We are thrilled to highlight the technical skill and creative thought that these young artists possess.

Some of the students addressed direct prompts from their studio teachers or used their artistic vocabulary to speak to social issues, while others found inspiration in found materials, literature, or even video games. Work was selected by art teachers from each school and submitted for exhibition.
