DROP-OFF INFORMATION AND LOCATIONS

Drop-off sites are essential as we strive to make participation in the state-wide YAM exhibit accessible to all Massachusetts communities. Thank you to all the teachers listed below who have volunteered to be a drop-off site. While drop-off sites have increased and artwork may also be mailed, some regions of the state could still use a drop-off location. If there is no drop-off near you I ask you to consider volunteering (now or in the future).

You can contact me at youthartmonth@massarted.com if you are interested. Thanks for all you do.
