The exhibition is on display during National Youth Art Month and celebrates artistic achievement and the dedication of local art teachers to art education. The exhibit displays the artwork of students from Escambia County schools with ages ranging from 5 to 18.  The students’ artwork fills the walls of two gallery spaces on the second floor of the museum.  A third gallery space upstairs displays the educators’ artwork from each school represented. There are various mediums for which each artwork is judged by jurors that include the president of the Pensacola Museum of Art Guild and UWF art professors. “Once each work is submitted, we have jurors come in to judge each medium,” Caitlyn Cooney, Curator of Education, said. “Painting, drawing, 2D art, photography, digital art, printmaking and 3D mediums will all have a first, second and third place.”

The exhibition teaches the students about art and lets them participate with hands-on learning and engagement with successful artists. Escambia County, the PMA Guild and the University of West Florida worked together to continue the annual exhibit.

Cooney says she loves the partnership between the museum, the guild and UWF because it allows numerous possibilities for the community. The success of the exhibit is seen through the more than 500 submissions that are currently exhibited.

“I think it’s been so successful because the kids love to participate,” Cooney said. “The teachers really appreciate the opportunity to put their kids’ work in a museum space.”

The opening reception for the exhibit will be held in three sections and awards will be given out in each section. The first section is on Jan. 22 at 5 p.m. for the educators, the second section is on Jan. 22 from 6-8 p.m. for secondary school students and the third section is on Jan. 24 from 6-8 p.m. for elementary school students.

“I’m excited to see all of the kids come to the reception,” Cooney said. “They’ll get their awards and hear their names being read off as an artist.”
