The Katonah Museum of Art is an innovative art museum that features a diverse variety of exhibitions and programs, engages local communities with topics of international scope and worldwide impact, and serves as a resource for educators.

Wooster students in the Class of 2024, Riley Andrea-Neuhuijs, Chloe Curvat, Max Rand, Maya Wood, and Lily Zhang have artworks on show at the Katonah Museum of Art this month as a part of the Annual Young Artists program which features the work of high school seniors from public and private institutions throughout the area. 

The Young Artists program and exhibition have been an annual tradition at the Katonah Museum of Art for 41 years. This innovative program enables students to participate in the exhibition design process from start to finish, intending to provide hands-on, learning experiences to aspiring artists. Students can collaborate with museum professionals and tackle the roles of artist, graphic designer, curator, exhibition designer, and installer of their work. Max Rand, Maya Wood, and Lily Zhang had the opportunity to participate in the installation of the museum exhibition this year. 

This year, on view, are 365 artworks by high school seniors from 43 schools across Fairfield, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester counties. The Young Artists program is an example of the KMA's constant commitment to offering our communities engaging museum educational opportunities and nurturing the upcoming generation of artists and creative thinkers. The exhibit runs through March 3, 2024.
