Photography, Painting, and Sculpture by Arlington Students
On exhibit at Central Library until April 1, 2020.
Each year, the Library hosts the Regional Scholastic Art Award, a competition that encompasses all Middle School and High School students in Arlington County. Teens in grades 7–12 can apply in 29 categories of art and writing for their chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited and published.
Over 3000 works of art are submitted for regional Scholastic awards each year. Judges award either a Gold or a Silver Certificate to approximately 300 pieces, which are then displayed on the first and second floors of the Arlington Central Library.
In 1923, Maurice R. Robinson founded this prestigious art exhibition for students with artistic talent. The Scholastic Art Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated
