Annual Spiritual and Religious Youth Art Competition

November 21, 2020 - January 2, 2021

Thank you to all students who entered this year's Spiritual and Religious Youth Art Competition! Our jurors were impressed by the originality and thoughtfulness the youth put in to their work and had a hard time narrowing it down to the final list. We encourage all who entered to continue making art.

With the holiday season swiftly approaching, we are excited to announce this year’s Annual Spiritual & Religious Youth Art Competition. This exhibition 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 that will coincide with themes found in the exhibition Contemplations: Highlights from the Spiritual and Religious Permanent Collection. The prompts for this year’s Youth Art Competition will focus on mindfulness and peace. We encourage students to consider the following prompts when thinking of subject matter:

  • When and where do you feel the most at peace?
  • When have you felt inspired or touched by nature?
  • When have you been mindful of the people and things around you?
  • Where is your favorite place to go in nature?

For this year only, the exhibition will be on display upstairs in our Dee Pioneer Gallery.
