Composite: High School Artists Exhibition

Jul 12 – Sep 8, 2019

Composite: High School Artist Exhibition

Composite is a group exhibition that aims to highlight the original artwork of talented high school aged public school, private school, and homeschooled students residing in Kent, Ottawa, and Allegan counties.

Introduced to the regional student-artist community as an open call for work of any medium, Composite is a collection of selected student-works submitted from the tri-county area surrounding UICA.

In order to address the disparity in access to arts education and the low investment in MI high school arts education, UICA is mounting the first of what will become an annual exhibition. The juried exhibition will offer cash prizes to three winning artists, and offer experiences that contribute to college and workforce readiness.

Featured Artists
The full list of Selected Artists will be announced upon completion of open call and Jurors’ review.
