Nemeth calls for youth art

Submission deadline is April 30, and a scholarship to a pre-college summer session at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design is up for grabs.

We are part of The Trust Project.

The Nemeth Art Center and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) are jointly hosting a youth art show from May 5 to July 2 in the Nemeth galleries.

Students grades 9-12 around the region are encouraged to submit their artworks for the juried show, and to attend student workshops on May 7 with MCAD representatives Christopher Alday and Edson Rosas.

The Nemeth is accepting submissions via until April 30. Artwork drop-off days at the gallery will be from 3 to 7 p.m. May 2-3. A public reception and award ceremony is scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m. May 7.

Alday and Rosas will select a first place winner from the show’s participants. The winner will receive a scholarship to MCAD’s pre-college summer session in 2023, where participants spend nearly a month on campus, immersed in their preferred artistic medium and getting a sense of what art school at the university level is like.

The scholarship covers room and board, instruction and materials, valued at $3,300. Due to the timeline, freshmen through juniors are eligible for this prize, though seniors are encouraged to participate in the art show and workshops nonetheless.
