Art Speaks Truth competition logo

The Art + Design Program presents 


28th Annual High School Art Exhibition

Feb. 19 - March 8, 2019

Ridenbaugh Gallery, U of I Moscow Campus

In high school we are learning about who we are. The theme for 2019, "Art Speaks Truth," provided an opportunity for students to be self-reflective or to be observational of their world. The theme could be interpreted literally, metaphorically, or whimsically.
