We are so excited to be the home (for three years now!) for the Scholastic Art Awards exhibition, a rad program we get to do every year with the Nevada Museum of Art. At Holland, for about a month, we get to display the Gold Key winning artists from Northern Nevada.
The Scholastic Awards are a national venture with a ton a cool history–not only celebrating the rich future of artistic America, but also documenting its past. The program has been credited with identifying early talent in generations of America’s cultural icons, including Truman Capote (1932), Richard Avedon (1941), Andy Warhol (ca. 1945), Sylvia Plath (1947), Robert Redford (1954) and Zac Posen (1998), each of whom won the award when they were in high school.
The exhibit opens on Friday, March 7 and goes through April 11. Make some time to come check it out!
