RAM features 113 students from 15 area schools in 77th Young Artist Show: High School Division, opens March 4

Rockford Art Museum (RAM) opens its 77th Young Artist Show: High School Division with a free public opening and awards ceremony 1–3 p.m., Sunday, March 4. Sponsored by Women’s Art Board, the exhibition remains on view through March 31 at RAM, located inside Riverfront Museum Park at 711 North Main Street in downtown Rockford.

Teachers at 18 schools within 50 miles of Rockford Art Museum submitted more than 1,000 pieces for consideration by this year’s jurors, who chose 149 pieces representing 113 students from 15 area schools. On view are paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, photography, digital and mixed media and more. Jurors Juan Fernandez and Stuart W. Henn did not know the artist’s name, grade level, or school affiliation when selections were made for inclusion in the exhibition and for awards.

Awards will be announced at 2 p.m. during the free public opening on Sunday, March 4. Students and teachers of any grade at any school receive free admission to the museum throughout the entire 77th Young Artist Show, which includes the subsequent Youth Division (April 8–May 6).
