Exhibitions of Student Art
The ArtWorks 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.

You Count: Student Response to the 2020 Census
Artwork Due: Friday, January 17, 2020
Exhibition Dates: January 24 through March 27, 2020
Eligibility: Kindergarten through College
Students are invited to submit works that reflect upon community involvement, the meaning of citizenship, the importance of participating in the 2020 census, and the universal idea of “You Count.”
The census is now more important to our state than ever! When all Alabamians respond to the census, we stand to gain several benefits, including learning more about our state population and guaranteeing critical representation and funding at the Federal level.
Works will be on display in the Museum’s ArtWorks Gallery and at a downtown venue designated by our exhibition partner, the City of Montgomery.
Student Art Collection
The Museum has purchased artwork from many of the student art exhibitions held in the ArtWorks 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.
