The Young Artists Exhibition (YAE) Program showcases student art created through the museum’s educational initiatives. Young Artists Exhibitions strive to publicly recognize and celebrate the achievements of students, teachers, and caregivers who understand the importance of studying and making art. In the tradition of Duncan Phillips, these exhibitions encourage the interaction between the museum and our communities’ young artists while fostering creativity, self-expression, and empowerment.
