The mission of the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art is to bring the excitement of American visual arts to the region through education, temporary exhibitions, the permanent collection, and the nurturing of regional artists. What better way to nurture young local talent than through exposure in a museum-sponsored juried art competition? The Regional High School Art Exhibition is an invitational exhibition, with over 75 schools from Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas asked to participate.
Artworks are divided into nine categories based on media and/or technique. After a panel jury selection, First, Second, and Third Place, plus Honorable Mentions, are awarded in each category. There are 203 works, and 32 schools represented in the 2017 Exhibition.
