38th Annual Markwalter Youth Art Exhibition

Held in conjunction with National Youth Art Month, the Institute’s thirty-eighth annual Agnes Markwalter Youth Art Competition seeks to promote the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs throughout the CSRA. The 2017 competition will showcase work inspired by the theme “United Through Art", created by K-12 students from public, private, and home schools in Aiken, Burke, Columbia, McDuffie, and Richmond Counties.
