Darkest Nights, Brightest Stars

15th Annual Juried Youth Exhibition

MOPA’s 15th Annual Juried Youth Exhibition uniquely combines imaginative artworks  responding to two separate thematic calls for submissions: Growing Up and Space. Youth artists in K-12 throughout San Diego and Tijuana were invited to share their unique interpretations of these seemingly disparate themes through photography and video. Through their lenses, powerful voices and common threads emerged.

The young artists rose above these unprecedented times to share compelling stories and perspectives about ambition, transformation, self identity, the earthly, and the ethereal. Finding solace and strength in art, their visions shine brightly into the future and remind us to see beyond what is present and known.
