YAM 2023: Exhibition for Youth Art Month Guidelines

March 12 – April 23

This year marks the 36th annual Youth Art Month (YAM) exhibition of student artwork on view at the Huntsville Museum of Art in the Adtran, Jurenko, Thurber, and Guild Galleries. This exhibition showcases nearly 200 exuberant works of art by youth in kindergarten through grade 12 from Huntsville City, Madison City, Madison County, Athens City, Limestone County, Decatur City, and Scottsboro City schools.

The Juried Art Teachers’ Biennial, Congressional Art Competition (on view March 12 – April 23), and VAA: Visual Arts Achievement Program District V Blue Ribbon Finalists (VAA on view March 12) exhibitions complement the student artwork this year. The VAA District V award-winning works will then subsequently travel to Montgomery to be displayed at the Alabama State Council on the Arts, along with other regional winners from across the state. The artwork by the winner of the Congressional Art Competition (CAC), selected from high school students in the 5th Congressional District will later travel to Washington, D.C. for a yearlong display at the U.S. Capitol.
