For over 30 years Student Gallery has given 11th and 12th grade students the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in leading museums and institutions in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. A panel of knowledgeable art professionals serve as un-biased jurors to review student work. These experts select six student finalists and 20 honorees whose work receives placement in local art institutions, including MOCA in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake Central Library, and Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk.
Student Gallery is a community partnership supported by dedicated fine arts administrators and teachers from public school districts, as well as leaders and volunteers from museums and art centers. Student Gallery provides one-of-a-kind, teachable moments for both art practitioners and students. MOCA is proud to showcase the 20 honorees in our Fleming Gallery.
