Community Art Show

Location: Pepco Edison Place Gallery – 702 8th Street, NW (map)

As part of its Youth Programs, the National Cherry Blossom Festival invites students from DC public and public charter schools in grades K through 12 to participate in the Youth Art Contest and Community Art Show. Each year, a creative theme is developed, and contest entries are judged by a panel assembled by the Festival. Winners in age-specific categories and one overall winner are selected, and are recognized publicly and awarded prizes at an Awards Reception with the winner’s families, teachers, and Festival and sponsor representatives.

The public can enjoy the students’ creativity and help select the overall contest winner by casting your vote online or in person at Pepco Edison Place Gallery March 20- April 18!

The 2014 Youth Art Contest and Community Art Show is presented with the DC Arts & Humanities Education Collaborative.

Gallery Hours:  Tuesday – Friday Noon – 4 PM

Join us for special gallery hours for two School Viewing Days on Sunday, March 23 and Saturday, April 5, 2014 from Noon-4 PM. Local youth are invited to see the work of their peers and encouraged to wear attire showing their school spirit!
