With the holiday season swiftly approaching, we are excited to announce this year’s Annual Spiritual & Religious Youth Art Competition. This exhibition, formerly known as the Annual Christmas Lamb Art Show exhibition, sponsored by Ingrid F. Nemelka and the Nemelka family, is open to K-10 students living in Utah Valley. This year, in efforts to make this an interfaith celebration, we are encouraging students to create artwork focused on symbols of the season.
The Utah All-State Annual High School Art show, now in its 46th year, provides a forum for high school juniors and seniors from across the state to exhibit their artwork in a professional museum setting. Students from every high school in Utah are invited to participate, and those that choose to enter must frame their artwork, write artist statements, and submit to the jury process. For many, this is their first exposure to a competitive exhibition but will be very similar to something they may encounter in their future careers.
