SAN DIEGO (KGTV)-- The San Diego Museum of Art's 46th Annual young Art Art Exhibition will feature artwork from the next generation of emerging San Diego artists.

Original student artwork created by Kindergarten through 12th grade students in the county will be on display from March 26 – May 9.

The theme for the biennial student exhibition, Young Art 2021 focuses on the environment and sustainability. Students are encouraged to express innovation and creativity through artwork that conveys a sustainable message or feeling, not being harmful to the environment and depleting natural resources, while taking inspiration from the Museum’s permanent collection.

The exhibition will be open whether the Museum is fully reopened in March or not. The expo will be on view in Galleries 14 and 55 at the Museum.

A new addition this year is "Young Art Outside the Frame." It's an initiative to bring selected student works of art into the community as public artworks by translating them onto SDG&E utility boxes. There will be a map detailing where to find the Young Art Outside the Frame utility boxes so people can bike or drive along the loop from Balboa Park to Barrio Logan to see the outdoor piece.
