2018 EXHIBITION THEME | PERSPECTIVES
ArtNow is an annual Santa Clara County arts exhibition and educational program, sponsored by New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU). ArtNow offers an opportunity for high school student artists, from Palo Alto to Gilroy, to gain real-world experience in a juried exhibition, hung in a museum, and publicly viewed. Each year, a new theme is chosen to inspire student creativity - Perspectives is the 2018 theme. NUMU offers a total of $10,000 in scholarships and awards to encourage students to pursue a profession in the visual arts.
Applications to the 2018 ArtNow exhibition are open to all Santa Clara County high school students, grades 9-12, public, private, and homeschooled. Applications and art submissions open Monday, November 20, 2017 and close Friday, January 26, 2018. Perspectives exhibition opens at NUMU on March 29, 2018 with a student reception and awards ceremony. A professional development scholarship, and cash awards in several categories, including painting, watercolor and drawing, sculpture, and video art, will be offered.
