February 2–March 17, 2013
From DePere to Kenosha, Monroe to Superior, Sheboygan to LaCrosse, students of Wisconsin in grades 7–12 annually inspire with their creativity, skill, and outstanding artistic talents. Over 325 student artworks are featured in the Scholastic Art Awards exhibition in the categories of Architecture, Ceramics & Glass, Comic Art, Design, Digital Art, Drawing, Fashion, Film & Animation, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture. Twenty-four visual artists and art professionals carefully selected the works from more than fifteen hundred entries, based on the students’ handling of the materials and the expressive execution of the work.
Students whose artwork has earned an award are recognized in awards ceremonies at the Museum. The Silver Key Award denotes special statewide recognition; artworks receiving a Gold Key Award go on to compete with entries from more than seventy-five other competitions throughout the United States for Silver and Gold Medals.
The Scholastic Art Awards program has been recognizing and encouraging excellence in the visual arts throughout the United States for over eighty-five years. Thousands of young people and their teachers have been encouraged and inspired in their artistic endeavors. Many award winners go on to achieve distinction in the fields of fine and applied arts and design, and credit the early recognition they received as a participant in the Scholastic Art Awards.
Sponsored by the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum Docents, the Marc & Karen Flesch Memorial Fund, Ray and Sue Kehm, James and Carol Wiensch, The Heller Family in memory of their parents, James K. and Avis M. Heller, and an anonymous donor
