The Middle Tennessee Scholastic Art Exhibition | Kids Out and About Nashville

The Middle Tennessee Scholastic Art Exhibition

The Scholastic Art Competition is one of the oldest and most prestigious student art competitions in the country. This year, Cheekwood will celebrate its 28th year as a regional affiliate.

The Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, a national nonprofit organization, was established in 1994 to provide guidance and support for the next generation. The Alliance fosters the creative development of youth across the country through The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the most prestigious recognition initiative for creative teens, and the largest source of scholarships for young artists. Alumni of the Scholastic Art Awards include artists Andy Warhol, Philip Pearlstein, Cy Twombly, Robert Indiana, Kay WalkingStick, Mozelle Thompson, Hughie Lee-Smith, and John Baldessari.

For the 28th consecutive year, Cheekwood is proud to present the Scholastic Art Exhibition. This year, over 700 Middle Tennessee students in grades 7-12 submitted over 1,800 works to be considered for recognition. The exhibition displays the Gold Key and Silver Key award recipient pieces, honoring the artistic talent and innovation of area students.
