The Canton Museum of Art (CMA) — supported by Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland State University, Columbus College of Art & Design, The University of Akron’s Myers School of Art, Ohio University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Otterbein University and Walsh University — presents the 32nd Annual Stark County High School Art Exhibition, on view March 15 through March 30th, 2024, in the Museum’s lower galleries. Museum admission to this exhibition, as well as A New Deal: Artists of the WPA from the CMA Collection will be FREE for everyone.

The Stark County High School Art Exhibition is an excellent platform for aspiring, teenage artists to have their work exhibited in a museum setting. All pieces presented are original works created as part of each participating school’s curriculum and chosen by the school’s art instructor. Works are judged on both originality and technical ability.

Approximately 100-150 entries will be on display from Alliance City Schools, Canton Local Schools, Central Catholic High School, Fairless Local Schools, Jackson Local Schools, Louisville City Schools, Massillon City Schools, Marlington Local Schools, Minerva Local Schools, North Canton City Schools, Osnaburg Local Schools, Perry Local Schools, Plain Local Schools, Sandy Valley Local Schools, and Tuslaw Local School District.

An in-person open house plus awards ceremony will be held at CMA on Friday, March 22nd, 2024 from 5:00PM-7:00PM with the awards portion starting at 6:00PM.  Awards include First, Second and Third Place winners each receiving a financial award to be used for College enrollment fees.  $2,500 for First Place, $1,500 for Second Place and $1,000 for Third Place.  Honorable mention awards will also be presented to 10 students, with each winner receiving a scholarship for classes with the CMA’s School of Art.
