Composite: High School Artists Exhibition

Jul 12 – Sep 8, 2019

Composite: High School Artist Exhibition

Composite is a group exhibition that highlight sthe original artwork of talented high-school-aged public, independent, and homes school 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 juried collection of student works from the region.

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 exhibition will offer cash prizes to three winning artists, and offer experiences that contribute to college and workforce readiness.

Composite is sponsored in part by:

Ferris State University
