SCHOLASTIC ART AWARDS 2014
February 7- March 3
Opening Reception February 7th from 5 – 8pm
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the most prestigious recognition program for creative teenage students in grades 7 through 12 around the nation. The program has been credited with identifying early talent in generations of America’s cultural icons, including Truman Capote (1932), Richard Avedon (1941), Andy Warhol (ca. 1945), Sylvia Plath (1947), Robert Redford (1954) and Zac Posen (1998), each of whom won the award when they were in high school. The Scholastic Art Awards are administered within the Louisville Metropolitan Region by Jefferson County Public Schools with support from the Fund for the Arts and the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft.
This exhibition, held on the third floor Brown-Forman Gallery, showcases the work from the Gold Key winners and the five American Visions nominees.
