Did you miss this year’s National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Teen Exhibition in New York City? If so, you may have a chance to catch a segment of the works while they tour the country in the Alliance’s first-ever traveling exhibition, ART.WRITE.NOW. The roughly 100 works of art and writing on display in ART.WRITE.NOW. are merely a slice of the national exhibition which in 2010 showcased more than 600 visual and literary works from teens in grades 7 through 12 hailing from 45 states and 6 countries.
The exhibition opened on October 29 at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, the first stop on its tour. A special exhibition reception with Fort Wayne Museum of Art Executive Director Charles A. Shepard III and Virginia McEnerney, Executive Director of the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, is free and open to the public on Saturday, November 6 from 4PM – 5PM.
The Fort Wayne Museum of Art is open Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 6pm (until 8pm on Thursdays) and on Sundays 12pm – 5pm.
