Young Artists 2021
Each year, the KMA celebrates the work of high school senior artists in what has become a perennially popular exhibition, now in its 38th year. In addition to having their pieces exhibited, students work alongside Museum professionals to take part in publicizing, curating and installing the exhibition. On view are nearly 350 artworks from more than 30 regional schools.

The Young Artists 2021 program is sponsored by the Samberg Family.

134 Jay Street, Katonah, New York, 10536, United States
Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA. The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. Our Learning Center is the only interactive space in Westchester County where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Our outreach programs for the local Hispanic immigrant population are at the forefront of community-based education programs. The KMA works intensively with schools and service organizations to develop literacy and assimilation skills among this population.  Annual attendance is approximately 25,000 people.

The Katonah Museum of Art's programs are made possible by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government, as well as by The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
