10x10 Teen Art Expo 2023

April 11–16


Presenting Sponsor:

US Bank 

Join us for the 2023 10x10 Teen Art Expo in the Great Hall celebrating the Greater Cincinnati regional 7th–12th grade students who were selected to show their artwork inspired by the theme: Nostalgia. 

One hundred selected artworks will be exhibited during the Expo; additional student works will be presented as a digital slideshow in the Great Hall from April 11–16.

Nostalgia tells a story and reminds us of the comforting moments and things of a time gone by. The simplicity in little things. The memories of joyful times, serene feelings, objects or people who matter to us. What does nostalgia mean to you? How have your past personal experiences defined you? How will the nostalgia of your life or a time of the past be reflected in your artwork?

Additional Volunteer opportunity

Want to volunteer at the Art Museum this summer?

The Cincinnati Art Museum is looking for responsible, motivated, and creative teen volunteers ages 13–17 to assist in our youth summer camps from June 12 through August 11. Summer Camp Volunteers assist instructors in the classroom by:

  • cleaning, preparing, and dispersing art supplies;
  • helping campers make artwork; and
  • assisting campers with lunch and bathroom breaks.

Volunteer hours will be from 10:30 a.m.–1 p.m. Volunteers can select which days they are available, and we ask that they commit to at least 20 days throughout the eight weeks of summer camp. Volunteer hours will be eligible for school volunteer credits.
