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. Guidelines for upcoming exhibitions of student art are included below.

Project: Contemporary student artists who are using materials in an innovative way 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.

Student Art Collection
The museum has purchased artwork from many of the student art exhibitions held in the ARTWORKS Corridor Gallery, forming a significant student art collection that spans over 25 years of creative expressions by young artists. Work from the student art collection is on view at various times and places and was included in two recent exhibitions in DC hosted by the Department of Education.
