Annual Spiritual and Religious Youth Art Competition

November 23, 2019 - January 4, 2020

Thank you to all the youth who entered the Annual Spiritual & Religious Youth Art Competition at the Springville Museum of Art. We were so impressed by your creativity, skill and talent! The jurying was very competitive and we wish we could show all of the works entered into this exhibition. Thank you again for participating in this show. Please plan on joining us at the opening reception Saturday November 23rd from 12pm-1pm. 

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 Spiritual & Religious Invitational exhibition Ars Moriendi: The Art of Death and Dying. The prompts for this year’s Youth Art Competition will focus on memories. 

We encourage students to consider the following prompts when thinking of subject matter:

  • Create an artwork of your favorite memory
  • How does art help you remember a loved one who has died?
  • Create an artwork of a family tradition
