High School Juried Art Show

Each year the Arts Council presents the Marvin S. Cone Annual High School Juried Art Show to recognize the artistic talents of Martin County high school students. The art teachers at each school select each piece of artwork for entry in the exhibit. It is a highly competitive process; the categories for cash awards are photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media/assemblage, printmaking, and drawing. The awards reception is held at the Court House Cultural Center Gallery. Additionally, each high school principal and the school superintendent select pieces to purchase that become a part of a permanent collection at their respective high schools and the superintendent's office.

For more information about the Arts In Education programs, please feel free to contact us.

About Marvin S. Cone:

Marvin S. Cone, a local writer, poet, art collector, entrepreneur, and educator was inspired by the creativity of art students in Martin County. He sought to encourage young people to pursue even greater achievements by transforming the annual high school art exhibit into an event that truly recognized student's artistic accomplishments. Established in 1987, the Marvin S. Cone Annual High School Juried Art Show honors its founder and his unrelenting enthusiasm for young people, for the arts, and for his timeless efforts in making this event what it is today.
