CAE’s 2023 Teen Exhibit features 57 2D and 3D artworks selected from nearly 200 submissions by 13-18 year old artists from across the Denver area. With 17 middle and high schools represented in the exhibit from 6 school districts, this year’s exhibit is our largest yet. A total of $500 in prize money will be awarded to the top three contestants as determined by CAE’s Teen Council, who were also responsible for curating the show. Most artworks are for sale, but some are for portfolios tied to professional art schools and universities. This exhibition is curated by the Teen Arts Council of the Center for the Arts Evergreen with the help of CAE staff and the CAE Curatorial Committee. The exhibition will be on view at the CAE Gallery until February 11, 2023.
