Youth Art Month
March is Youth Art Month! To celebrate the fine arts in our public schools, the MPSD is once again collaborating with the Rahr West Art Museum to bring “Youth Art Series” to our community! The exhibition is composed of nearly 1,000 works of art by student artists in elementary, middle, and high school. Artwork of every medium can be viewed: painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, collage, fibers, digital media, photography, and animation. Immerse yourself in the creativity and energy of our local youth artists by viewing the exhibit from March 5th through April 2nd. In addition, a casual reception open to the public to honor and recognize the MPSD’s aspiring visual artists will take place on Sunday, March 5th, from 1:00 - 4:00 pm.
The Rahr-West Art Museum is a City of Manitowoc facility. There is no fee for admission. Donations are gratefully accepted.
