High School Art Exhibition

The Art + Design Program presents

I'm Listening

30th Annual High School Art Exhibition

April - May 2021 on the U of I campus and online!
Exact dates and opening reception will be announced.

We've learned a lot in 2020, especially about the importance of truly listening. We hope this year's exhibit theme, "I'm Listening," will inspire high school students throughout Idaho. The theme can be interpreted literally, metaphorically or playfully. We look forward to seeing what you create!

The exhibit opening will coincide with Sneak Peak, a campus visit event for high school students. If you are planning to visit Moscow for the exhibition, please explore Sneak Peek and/or take a guided tour of the Art + Design Program.
