CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Art Museum is seeking talented, young artists, ages 13–19, to display their work at the first annual 10x10: Teen Art Expo Saturday, April 14 from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sunday, April 15 from 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Teen artists are asked to create a flat work of art in any media that measures 10 inches by 10 inches on the topic of “environment.” Artists can interpret the theme in any way they feel appropriate.

“We wanted to provide an outlet to showcase the incredible talent of teenage artists in the Greater Cincinnati area. By asking all the artists to work within the same size, we hope to see a wide range of diverse styles come together in a unified display,” says Russell Ihrig, Associate Director of Interpretive Programming.

Teen artists can submit their artwork in person from March 15–18 to the Front Lobby or Dewitt entrance. Artists can also submit by mail to Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45202, attention: Learning and Interpretation. Deadline to submit is Sunday, March 18. Prior to submitting artwork, please fill out a contact form which can be found at cincinnatiartmuseum.org/events-programs/families-teens/teen-programs/
