Opening March 29, 2018] at Kane County Hospital, (KCH), the exhibit features the award-winning artwork by students participating in the 2014 All-State High School Show.

 

“The Utah All State Show is once again well worth a visit to KCH’s Healing Arts show”, Laurali Noteman explains.” There are amazing pieces up this rotation which showcase a diverse collection of very talented young people.”

 

Sponsored each spring by the Springville Museum of Art, this statewide high school art competition provides a professional forum for students to display their best work and an opportunity to highlight a talented arts educator. For many students, this contest provides a first taste of artistic competition and prepares them for the future competitions they may choose to enter. The exhibition provides exposure for graduating students within the state. Past senior class artists have received scholarships awarded by the art schools of Utah colleges and universities following their participation in this program. In addition to student awards, the Springville Museum of Art awards an outstanding arts educator from a Utah high school for their dedication to their students and the creation of art.

 

The competition is open to 11th and 12th grade students from public and private schools throughout Utah. All artwork is submitted by the school’s art department and each student may submit up to two pieces of artwork into the competition.
