Calling All Student Artists!

The Biggs is inviting students in grades K-12 to submit a self-portrait in any medium for inclusion in the museum's annual Youth Art Month show. The exhibit will take place from March 3rd through March 23rd. The self-portrait theme for this year's celebration is inspired by our upcoming exhibit this May, entitled “Rembrandt Etchings: States, Fakes, and Restrikes." Rembrandt was known for his self-portraits and now your students can be too!

Submissions are welcome from school groups and individual students.

The museum will be free to the public for the opening of the exhibit on Saturday, March 3rd. During the month of March, all family and friends are welcome to view the exhibit for free by mentioning their child’s name at the front desk.

Artwork must be dropped off to the Biggs Museum no later than February 23rd. Artist statements, titles, and artist names should be digitally submitted at the email address below. We kindly request that all 2D art work be ready to hang with wire.

For details on submission, please contact the Biggs’ Curator of Education, Reggie Lynch, at rlynch@biggsmuseum.org.
