New Museum Los Gatos, aka NUMU, selected 83 finalists for its annual ArtNow exhibition, a Santa Clara County-wide high school art competition that drew entries from more than 800 students from Palo Alto to Gilroy.
The juried exhibition will be on display from March 31 to June 25 at NUMU, located at 106 E Main St.
This year’s theme, “Unarmed Truth,” was co-created with the ArtNow Teen Council, and students were encouraged to find inspiration from leaders and social movements that helped them understand, embody or uphold a hidden truth as a community.
NUMU created the teen council last August to help the ArtNow program to be more widely accessible and more relevant to teenagers living across Santa Clara County. Members include students from Los Gatos and Los Altos high schools, as well as Mitty, Leland, Leigh and Independence high schools, located in various areas of San Jose.
Six students from Los Gatos High School and one from Saratoga High School were selected to have their work on display in the exhibit.
Work by LGHS students Sydney Chandler, Liam Matthiasson, Cal Railo, Rocky Rodriguez, Cynthia Wang, Kate Wright will be featured, along with Saratoga High School sophomore Amy Pan’s pop-up book, “LOST: Blossom in the Crescent Moon.”
Winners will be selected in each medium, including painting, drawing, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture, photography, digital art and video animation, as well as Best in Show and People’s Choice awards. Winning artists could receive scholarships and awards totaling $10,000.
The ArtNow exhibit and program gives high school students real-world experience in participating in a juried museum exhibition.
