  • Youth Services staff reserve the right to determine qualification for the art show.
  • All artwork on paper, including photographs, should be wall-ready. Art may be framed, matted, or attached to a piece of tagboard or cardstock (be sure to leave a border of between 2” to 4”). Please let us know if this isn’t possible for you, and we can still accept your piece.
