Discover student artwork from local San Diego County schools in The San Diego Museum of Art’s biennial exhibition, Young Art 2013: The Story of Me. Dive into the minds of local San Diego youth as they explore their personal identity through artwork. The exhibit features 200 pieces of artwork from students in grades K-12th, ranging from photographs, paintings, and even items of clothing As you walk through the exhibit, you can see large numbers next to each piece that tell you which grade each artist is in. You can also see which school each student attends.
While you enjoy and stimulate your visual senses, grab your smartphone or borrow an iPod from the front desk to listen to the audio tour presented by the artists. The audio tour features 17 students describing their individual pieces of artwork and how each piece was made.
In addition to the featured artwork from students, pieces of modern art from professional artists like Beverly McIver make appearances throughout the exhibit. Professional artists, like McIver, examine their own personal stories and tell deep stories about their own inherent struggles with identity.
The exhibition is available now through May 26, 2013, at The San Diego Museum of Art! See more...Read The Rest
