This year marks the 35th annual Youth Art Month (YAM) exhibition of student artwork on view at the Huntsville Museum of Art in the Adtran, Jurenko, Thurber and Women’s Guild Galleries. This exhibition showcases 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 Congressional Art Competition and VAA: Visual Arts Achievement Program District V Blue Ribbon Finalists exhibitions complement the student artwork this year. The VAA District V award-winning works will be a part of an exhibition with 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, 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.
Youth Art Month is observed nationally each March to emphasize the value of art education for children and to encourage public support for quality school art programs. Youth Art Month is endorsed by The National Art Education Association, Alabama Art Education Association, Alabama State Department of Education, Alabama Alliance for Arts Education and locally by the Huntsville-Madison County Art Education Association.
