High Art is an annual exhibition showcasing the extraordinary talent and ideas of high school students enrolled in public, private, parochial, alternative, charter or homeschool programs.  This youth exhibition connects teens with artists both past and present, fosters the creation of original artworks, and provides a professional forum for students to voice their own creativity and work collaboratively.



The Statue of Liberty in New York; The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France; St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, Russia; The Great Sphinx at Giza, Egypt; Easter Island in the Polynesian Triangle, Pacific Ocean; Machu Picchu in Peru; The Great Wall of China; The Taj Mahal in Agra, India are just a few examples of this year’s High Art theme of Architecture – World Icons.

High school students will choose an architectural icon from around the world and use the icon’s inspiration to shape an original art installation.
