Produced and presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, Art.Write.Now.Tour showcases a selection of works from the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards—inspiring and innovative work by teenagers from all across the country.

Now in its seventh year, the exhibition is celebrated for being the freshest and most relevant look at creative work by young artists today. Art.Write.Now.Tour provides valuable insights about the issues on the minds of teens, through the lens of sophisticated and captivating works of art.

In addition to approximately 50 visual works selected from the Art.Write.Now.2016 national exhibition, Art.Write.Now.Tour features The Best Teen Writing of 2016, the annual anthology of Gold Medal writing, displayed on iPads. This year’s traveling exhibition has been guest curated by Johanna Burton, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement at the New Museum in New York City.
