ARTwalk Youth Art Exhibit

Clear Channel Outdoor ARTwalk

The ARTwalk is a unique opportunity for individuals, schools, and community organizations to highlight the visual arts achievements of young people in a professionally curated art exhibit displayed across the businesses and storefront windows of Downtown Saint Paul. As part of the Flint Hills International Children’s Festival, the ARTwalk celebrates the creativity of young artists ages 0 to 18 from across the region. Students in transitional programs up to age 23 are also welcome to participate.

Because the ARTwalk is a non-juried exhibition, participants are encouraged to be selective in their entries.

Entries can be submitted on a group or individual basis. All artwork must be delivered by February 20 to the Ordway. The ARTwalk will be on display May 6–June 4, 2017, in windows and storefronts of downtown Saint Paul businesses and in an online virtual gallery.
