2013NationalExhibition (small)

It’s been ten days since the 2013 Scholastic Art & Writing Award winners were honored at Carnegie Hall, but we’re still celebrating their accomplishments. The two weeks following the Awards ceremony (which, by the way, you can watch [or re-watch] online) are some of my favorite: that’s when a selection of Award-winning art and writing is on display here in New York. Of course, living in this City means we’re fortunate enough to be surrounded by countless museums and galleries, but I can honestly say that the pieces featured in the Art.Write.Now.2013 National Exhibition are some of the most extraordinary I’ve seen.

This year, more than 550 Award-winning pieces of art and writing by students in grades 7 – 12 are on display at 2 locations. In addition to film, animation, 2D and 3D artworks, and video games, exhibit-goers can watch video greetings from the students and read stunning literary works on e-readers. If you’re in New York, be sure to check out the exhibitions this week; they close on Saturday! If you’re not in New York, don’t worry– you can get a sneak peek of the work on display by checking out our Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Pinterest board, which features works by this year’s Portfolio Gold Medalists. Plus, this fall, these incredible works will travel to 4 cities across the country as part of the Art.Write.Now Tour. (Cities to be announced soon!)
