MASON CITY – Art: The Next Generation is the theme of the 29th annual Youth Art Month Exhibition in the Center Space Gallery of the MacNider Art Museum, Mason City. This year the spotlight shines on high school students, celebrating the creative insight and energy of students in grades nine through twelve. Student artists whose work has been selected for inclusion in the exhibition will be honored at a reception and recognition ceremony at the Museum on Saturday, March 30 at 1:00 p.m. The reception will be hosted by Alpha Delta Kappa, an honorary sorority for women in education.

The purpose of Youth Art Month is to emphasize the value of art education for all students and to encourage support for quality school art programs. Demonstrated outcomes of art education have been shown to be development of critical thinking skills, self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression and cooperative working skills. Art teachers from AEA Area 267, Clear Lake Regional Office schools were invited to enter artwork from their students. Thirty-nine works from ten schools were selected by Curatorial Intern Audrey Sparks, a North Iowa Area Community College student. Art: the Next Generation is sponsored by Target. The exhibition continues through Saturday, April 20.
