The Heritage Museum presented the inaugural youth art show in January 2023. This was an opportunity for youth in our community to be creative and submit original art for display. Original art means work that has been conceived in the youth’s own mind. Copying from another’s work in any way shape or form is not permitted.

The artwork was on display at the Heritage Museum for one month, and is now featured as an online exhibit. The museum accepted entries in a diverse range of media, including drawing, painting, collage, photography, printmaking, ceramics, audio/visual, and sculpture. Works could be two-dimensional or three-dimensional.

Although we believe that art is one of the greatest forms of self-expression, the art in this show does NOT contain material which is considered offensive or inappropriate. Click the button below to view the art.
