A Day in the Life of My Community Teen Art Exhibition

Sponsored by the Walters Art Museum Teen Arts Council (WAMTAC), this juried exhibition of original artworks by Maryland area high school students reflects the themes of identity, community, and place through the lens of youth.

Selected work will be exhibited March 15–April 3, 2016. A reception for participating students and their families will be held on Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 5 to 8 p.m. 

Please note that student artwork may be off view during special events and programs.  


The Walters Art Museum’s Teen Arts Council is pleased to announce a call-for-entry exhibition for high-school–aged students in the Maryland area. 

Art serves as a medium to record and reflect upon the signs of the times; A Day in the Life of My Community Teen Art Exhibition seeks original works reflecting the themes of identity, community, and place as interpreted through the lens of youth. 

Eligibility: Open to teens age 13–18 in the Maryland area. Works must be two-dimensional and may include drawings, paintings, photography, collage, or digital images. Works should be matted but not framed, and may not exceed 36 inches by 30 inches. The Walters Art Museum reserves the right to disqualify entries from the exhibit if they are inappropriate or if they fail to meet exhibition criteria.

The deadline for entry is March 2, 2016. Artists will be notified via e-mail by March 8, 2016.

Please include 1–3 images of your work, the dimensions, and an artist statement/description of how the entries relate to the themes. Send submissions to:
