Each spring the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts sponsors the Annual Area Youth Art Exhibition, a show mounted on the LCVA's Lower Level. The exhibition features work from some 400 students from ten counties, including public, private, and home schools. In 2013, the youth art exhibition will run from March 24 – April 20, with a free opening reception for the young artists, their families, and the adoring public on March 24. The LCVA would like to express appreciation to
the Jessie Ball duPont Fund for its sponsorship of our 2013 youth art exhibition.
