Northwestern High School Art Show

Northwestern High School Art Show

The North Hennepin Community College Fine Arts Department is excited to welcome our annual Northwestern High School Art Show February 5 through February 26, 2024, in the Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery.

The exhibition celebrates the outstanding artwork produced by local area high school students and includes drawings, paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, and more. 

Eleven area high schools will participate, including Champlin Park, Elk River, Irondale, Maple Grove, Osseo, Park Center, Robbinsdale Armstrong, Robbinsdale Cooper, Rogers, St. Michael-Albertville, and Zimmerman. Up to 10 students from each school may submit artwork for the show. This year’s show contains more than 95 pieces of art. 

“We love seeing area schools so beautifully represented in this year’s exhibit. The talent behind the artworks offers an exciting glimpse into the individual creativity of the next generation. We intend to help these young artists reach a larger audience through participation in a college exhibition,” said Leslie McDougall, Graphic Design Faculty and Director of the Joseph Gazzuolo Art Gallery.

This year's awards will be announced on February 26 at 6:30 p.m. One student from each participating high school will be recognized by NHCC faculty with an Artistic Merit Award during the exhibition. Visitors to the gallery may also cast their vote for a People’s Choice Award (PCA) up until 12 p.m. on February 23. The winner of the PCA will be featured on next year’s event promotional materials.

Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
