What is the Globe Art Show?   Each year the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers partners with The Boston Globe to bring the competition to local communities. The Globe Art Exhibit is the longest running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S.  A panel of professionals review each work of art using the following criteria: originality, technical skill, and emergence of personal vision or voice.
The Awards are an important opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents. This exciting competition is open to art students in grades seven through 12 in all public, private and parochial schools in Massachusetts. The Alliance has an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon and Robert Redford.
   The Wakefield High School Visual Arts Department recently entered the 2014 Boston Globe Art Exhibit.  High school students received two silver keys, and 18 Honorable Mentions. Listed below are our winners. The entire collection of award winning work will be exhibited at Arts Night on June 11 at the Americal Civic Center.
