The 35th Annual Young At Art Juried Exhibition 2023

Sponsored by EHCC and the Hawai‘i District Department of Education 

The Young at Art annual juried exhibition celebrates National Youth Art Month by recognizing the excellence, creativity and originality of K-12 students on Hawai’i Island in all public, charter, and private schools, as well as home-schooled students.

This year, we’re expanding Young At Artʻs impact and accessibility by creating a community-based art experience. For the first time, the exhibit will be on view at multiple locations across Hawai‘i Island. Locations include small businesses, public libraries, County facilities and more. 

231 artworks will be showcased at 26 locations around the island, aiming to bring more visibility to Youth Art Month (March) and the importance of arts education in schools. 

Made possible with support from the 2023 County of Hawai‘i Waiwai grant program.
