In partnership with Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University, Art.Write.Now touring exhibition will be on display September 20th - October 14th, 2016 in the HMK Gallery.
Art.Write.Now.Tour is a national traveling exhibition of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Curated, produced, and presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the Tour showcases a selection of works from the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards–inspiring and innovative work by teens from all across the country.
Now in its seventh year, the Tour is celebrated for being the most fresh and relevant look at creative work by young artists today. If you want to know what issues are on the minds of teenagers, the Art.Write.Now.Tour is sure to provide valuable insights through the lens of sophisticated and captivating artworks.
In addition to approximately 50 visual art works selected from the Art.Write.Now.2016 National Exhibition, the Art.Write.Now.Tour will feature the Best Teen Writing of 2016, our annual anthology of selected Gold Medal writing, displayed on iPads.
This traveling exhibition has been guest curated by Johanna Burton, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement at the New Museum in New York City.
