2020 Youth Art Month Virtual Exhibit#

2020 Youth Art Month Virtual Exhibit

Youth Art Month is observed nationally every March to emphasize the value of art education for all youth and to encourage support for quality school art programs. The City of Fort Collins holds an annual exhibit at the Carnegie Center for Creativity to showcase the talent of young artists from private and public schools in Fort Collins. Over 40 schools displayed their student’s artwork in the exhibition, featuring the work of kindergarteners through high school students in all media--including paintings, sculpture, clay, jewelry and more.

In response to local, state and federal recommendations regarding public gatherings, the City of Fort Collins closed the Carnegie Center for Creativity and the exhibit. In hopes that for more people to see the amazing artwork, we are posting a virtual version of the exhibit here on our website.
