The Twenty first Annual University of Idaho High School Art Exhibition willbe held from February 21 to March 2, 2012 in Ridenbaugh Hall on the UI campus. An awards reception will be held Friday, February 24 from 4-6 pm in
the gallery.

The theme of the exhibition this year is “2012 Time Capsule-How will the future remember today?” The theme is chosen to stimulate high school student’s imaginations and to encourage creativity

Approximately 150 students from over twenty high schools around the state participate each year. University of Idaho students are actively involved in the exhibition installation and publicity. A committee of University of Idaho art student jurors selects award winners and over $800 in gift certificates for art supplies are given to the winners to encourage future creativity.

The program benefits students beyond validating and honoring their work. It increases interaction between high school art teachers and the University of Idaho, and also develops awareness on the part of many Idaho communities of the talents of their high school artists and teachers. Most important is the effect the exhibition can have on individual students. The Annual High School Art Exhibition allows the university to extend beyond campus boundaries and positively affect the education of Idaho’s youth.

Sally Machlis, Professor of Art and Art Education and chair of the Department of Art and Design coordinates the exhibition.
