La Quinta Arts Foundation became the presenting sponsor of the annual Young Artists Exhibition, a program of the nonprofit Artists Council that promotes arts education in public and private high schools across the Coachella Valley.
The exhibition (April 27–May 21, 2023) is an opportunity for student artists to participate in the juried process, see their art exhibited in a gallery, and engage in community programming.
This year, students address the theme of “truth” in a variety of two-dimensional and digital/video media and write an artist statement. Their work is judged on originality, interpretation and presentation of the theme, quality craftsmanship, creative use of materials, meaningful communication of ideas, and thoughtful use of color.
Artists and their families, teachers, and administrators are invited to the Young Artists Exhibition opening reception April 29 at the Artists Center at The Galen in Palm Desert.
In appreciation of the essential role of art educators in encouraging their students and supporting the exhibition, the Artists Council gifts a one-year membership to each participating teacher.
