Celebrating Youth Art Month, the Sioux City Art Center is featuring its 27th Annual Juried Youth Art Exhibition: High School from February 13 – April 10, 2016. The opening reception was held Sunday, February 14, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Mayor Bob Scott, Art Center Director Al Harris-Fernandez, Education Coordinator Debra Marqusee, and Sioux City Community Schools Arts & Community Engagement Program Coordinator Pat Toben presented awards.
The Youth Art Month awards and exhibition are made possible again this year in part by Pinnacle Bank, Aalfs Family Foundation, and a grant from the Iowa Arts Council. The Art Center supports and encourages young artists to express and explore their individual creativity through the art-making process. Through their art, these students are provided an opportunity to demonstrate ambitious efforts resulting in success that can help open doors to endless possibilities in all areas of their lives.
