Youth Council Pop-Up Student Exhibition - Tampa Museum of Art



Due to Covid – 19,the Tampa Museum of Art Youth Council wasn’t able to host our annual student exhibition last year. But this year, we decided to showcase student art by incorporating it as a pop-up exhibition at the Silent Disco and featuring each selected piece in the first edition of “The Student Edit”, our teen curated magazine. To commemorate this new change in not only this program, but this whole year, the theme for the exhibition will be Change/Transformation.

Change is a constant in everything around us: changes in our environment, changes in our relationships, or even changes in ourselves. Change is a fear for many because of the infinite amount of possibilities and going into something unknown. But it could also come with the potential to encounter new opportunities. In this exhibition, we challenge you to explore the ideas of change and transformation through your art. How does your art express your perspective on how change has affected your life?


Submissions open – September 6 

Submission deadline – October 16
