Youth Art Month 2015

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.

Teachers may submit up to 5 works. There is a $15 fee for NON-MAEA members to submit work. (This is to cover related exhibit costs that are covered for members through their dues). All work meeting exhibit requirements will be accepted (details can be found in the downloads section on right).


The 2015 MAEA Youth Art Month exhibit will be held at the State Transportation Building in Boston MA from March 9th - April 24th.
Hours: Monday - Friday | 9:00am - 5:00pm
Closed weekends and Patriots Day, Monday, April 21

Family Celebration Day: Sunday, March 22nd | 12:00 - 4:00PM
