The National Gallery for America’s Young Artists™ is honored to announce the Grand Opening of the first ever national youth art gallery (Kindergarten thru 12th grade).
This art will be featured in conjunction with the magnificent Vatican Splendors traveling exhibit, opening in Cleveland, Ohio on May 31, 2008 for a limited engagement. The Vatican Splendors Exhibit included 200 of the rarest paintings and artifacts from its archives dating from the third century. To celebrate the rare opportunity for this exhibit to appear in Cleveland, Ohio, The National Museum of Education will coincide the opening with the online National Gallery for America’s Young Artists™. For this new National Gallery, schools will submit digital images of selected student art, which will be chosen for exhibit online. Corporations, universities and private collectors nationwide will then have the opportunity to purchase art for display in their company foyers and board rooms. This has the potential to become the largest national art gallery for youth!
The student artist will receive all of the purchase price. (The National Museum of Education, which will administer this new National Gallery for America’s Young Artists™, will accept absolutely no portion of the sale.) The sale of the art will result in a critical resume builder for the young artist. It will provide a foundation for any future art careers with a piece of this student’s art prominently displayed in a company’s foyer.
