Just in Time for Art Week Miami: The National YoungArts Foundation Debuts New Exhibits

The National YoungArts Foundation identifies and nurtures the most accomplished young artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts and assists them at critical junctures in their educational and professional development. YoungArts aspires to create a community of alumni that provides a lifetime of encouragement, opportunity and support. Established in 1981 by Lin and Ted Arison, YoungArts’ signature program is an application-based award for emerging artists ages 15–18, or in grades 10–12, from across the United States.

Coinciding with the beginning of Art Week Miami, are three new exhibits that are sure to inspire.
