Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition

Organized by the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts

For over 60 years, the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts has opened a door for young people to showcase their artistic talents and skills through the annual Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition. Arkansas students – from kindergarten through 12th grade – submit works of art in a variety of media. A grand juror awards a Best of Class and two Honorable Mentions per grade, as well as the Ray Smenner Award for Painting and the Mid-Southern Watercolorists Award for Watercolor. The Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition also rewards each winner’s schools to benefit their art programs and encourage further engagement with the arts.

The 61st Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition awards are supported in part by Arkansas Children’s Hospital and Mid-Southern Watercolorists.
