MASSACHUSETTS YAM 2015 (BOSTON)

Organized by the MAEA YAM committee, the Boston Exhibit will be similar to last year. Our goal is to grow this exhibit to be a true statewide event celebrating Visual Art Education. It is an opportunity to spotlight student work K-12 from across the state and should be considered in addition to any regional, district or school celebrations. This year there will be even more drop off sites; mailing student art work is also an option this year.

The 2015 MAEA Youth Art Month exhibit was held at the State Transportation Building in Boston MA from March 9th - April 24th.
