ArtNow is an annual juried Santa Clara County high school art exhibition and educational program, presented by New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU). The ArtNow Exhibition and supporting programs offer opportunities for high school student artists, from Palo Alto to Gilroy, to gain real-world experience in participating in a juried museum exhibition. Each year, a new theme is chosen for the exhibition and students are asked to submit works based on that theme. $8,000 in scholarships and awards are given to participating students.
Applications to the 2019 ArtNow exhibition are open to all Santa Clara County high school students, grades 9-12, public, private, and homeschooled. The exhibition opens at NUMU on March 21, 2019 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 awarded at the opening reception.
