Now in its 73rd year, the Young Artist Show is a Rockford tradition that showcases the strength and diversity of art programs across the region through a juried High School Division and separate Youth Division. RAM remains dedicated to this exhibition and its value as an event that celebrates and supports art education, and allows us to recognize outstanding students and their exceptional artwork.
