Annual Spiritual and Religious Youth Art Competition

November 20, 2021 - January 8, 2022

With the holiday season swiftly approaching, we are excited to announce this year’s Annual Spiritual & Religious Youth Art Competition. This exhibition is open to K-10 students living in Utah Valley. This year, in efforts to make this an interfaith celebration, we are encouraging students to create artwork that will coincide with themes found in the exhibition Depictions of Divinity. The prompts for this year’s Youth Art Competition will focus on Divinity and what that means to each student. We encourage students to consider the following prompts when thinking of subject matter:

  • What does "Divine" or "Divinity" mean to you?
  • When do you feel close to something bigger than yourself?
  • Where do you see Divinity in yourself? What is your superpower? What superpower would you like? 

The exhibition will be located in the Ingrid Nemelka Gallery on the Main Floor of the Museum from November 20th, 2021 through January 8th, 2022. The Museum will select a number of works to be included in the exhibition. Of those selected for display, a small number will be chosen for cash prizes!
