What is High Art? 

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.


What is installation art?

Installation art uses any material invention to modify the way a space is experienced, and can be either temporary or permanent.  Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces.  The genre incorporates a broad range of materials, including but not limited to huge, three-dimensional painting/murals, sculpture, poems, and new media such as video, sound, and performance art.
