Sioux City Community Schools Youth Art Month Exhibition Award Winners - 27th Annual Juried Youth Art Exhibition, Sioux City Art Center

 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.

Twenty-one high school art teachers from fifteen schools in the tristate area submitted 440 entries. Sixty-one pieces of art were selected by juror, John Bowitz, Professor Emeritus of the Art Department of Morningside College, and Art Center Director, Al Harris-Fernandez. The artworks were judged on originality, creativity, personal expression and technique. 

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.
