Exhibitions of Student Art

The ARTWORKS Corridor Gallery is devoted to temporary exhibitions of student art, inspired by work on view elsewhere in the Museum. Throughout the year, the Museum juries and hosts themed shows, and guidelines encourage teachers to develop related lesson plans. Instructions for upcoming exhibitions of student art are included below.

Current Exhibition

Emergent Viewpoints: Art in Alabama Today

November 16 through January 21, 2018
Middle school through college artists

Contemporary student artists who are innovatively using materials or who have altered the way we understand traditional art forms like painting, photography, and sculpture are invited to submit. We will showcase a mixture of two-and-three-dimensional artworks that celebrate innovation, creativity, and a fresh perspective on the world we live in, our place in it, or any concept the artist wishes to explore.

Upcoming Exhibitions

The Southern Lens: Photographs of the South

January 25 through March 5, 2018
Kindergarten through 12th-grade artists

Artwork Due: Friday, January 12, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 8, 2018, at 5:30 P.M.

Photography students are invited to capture their interpretations of the South. What does it mean to be southern, or what images do we, as Alabamians, connect with our southern roots? Whether photographers interpret the South as a geographic location, a historical period, or a culture in flux, the images are sure to convey a powerful idea of what it means in the eyes of young artists to be not only a Southerner but an Alabamian.
