ATLANTA HIGH SCHOOL ART EXHIBITION

Although the Atlanta Dogwood Festival was canceled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, festival organizers determined that the art must go on! In order to encourage young artists and celebrate their creative genius, the festival, along with partner Binders Art Supplies and Frames, will present a special edition of the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition (AHSAE) at Ponce City Market.

Oct. 11-24, 2020

11 a.m. – 6 p.m. weekdays
11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
at

Ponce City Market

675 Ponce de Leon Ave., NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
Accessible from North Avenue

Admission to the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition is free!

In order to practice social distancing, attendance will be limited to 20 people at a time. All volunteers, staff and visitors will be required to wear face masks covering their nose and mouth.

“The Atlanta Dogwood Festival was founded in 1936 to bring people out of the doldrums of the Great Depression, so it’s fitting that we’re hosting this year’s Atlanta High School Art Exhibition as an effort to raise people’s spirits during the pandemic,” said Brian Hill, festival executive director. “We are pleased to bring this show to the community even as we plan ahead for the 2021 festival.”

Each year, the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition (AHSAE) offers young artists an opportunity to compete, exhibit their work and earn prizes such as scholarships and art supplies. This “must see” festival event is a juried competition that drew 850 submissions this year from which the best 149 works comprise the festival exhibition.

Established in the early 1970s, the AHSAE recognizes and encourages the fine quality of art created by the area’s high school students. Welcoming entries from high school art students from 12 regional Atlanta counties, the competition offers awards worth more than $40,000 and fills a growing gap in creative opportunities for youth.

Be sure to visit the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition in the Community Center near the 12th Street Entrance to get a look at the variety and breadth of Atlanta’s young artistic talent.
