education > artists of the 21st century

Each spring, SAMA hosts its annual student art exhibition, Artists of the 21st Century, at its Ligonier Valley and Loretto museums.

The dual exhibition features hundreds of works created by students in grades K through 12.

Held in conjunction with National Youth Art Month and the State Arts-in-Education Month, Artists of the 21st Century is open to schools that participate in SAMA’s education programs.

Opening receptions accompany the exhibitions, which provide students and aspiring young artists with an opportunity to see their work professionally hung in a gallery setting accompanied with full museum text panels.
