Teen Programs

Submit your artwork to be on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum!

The Cincinnati Art Museum is looking for talented, young artists, grades 7-12, to display their work at our 10x10: Teen Art Expo. Just create a work of art on paper that measures 10 inches by 10 inches.

This year’s theme is "Space." Whether it’s outer space or personal space, express your feelings about this open ended prompt visually.

All works must be on paper. No frames or mats allowed. All artwork must be submitted through our online form to be considered. 100 works will be displayed in person, and all other qualifying works will be presented in a slideshow. Online submissions are due March 15. Please submit your artwork by clicking the link here.

The Cincinnati Art Museum seeks to be inclusive in this exhibition.  We will display all qualifying artworks submitted on a slideshow in the Great Hall during the Teen Art Expo.  We will highlight 100 artworks that will be displayed in person during the exhibition. These 100 artworks will be selected by the 10x10 Team to showcase a variety of schools and ages. The 10x10 Team is a group of volunteer teen art enthusiasts from around the city, that is organizing this year’s Expo.

Final artwork selections will be announced on March 23 via email. Artwork drop off will be specified in the announcement. If you have any questions, or did not receive an email, please contact [email protected].

Artwork will be displayed from May 6–9 at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Each fall, the museum recruits youth to help plan and organize the 10x10 Teen Art Expo. The 2020-2021 10x10 team has already been selected, please check back in Fall 2021 to be a part of the 2022 Teen Art Expo.
