Now through April 11, visitors to the Fort Wayne Museum of Art can enjoy the annual celebration of Scholastic Art & Writing Award recipients. 

The winning works are from students grades 7-12 from Northeast Indiana and Northwest Ohio. 

The museum said of the event, “It has grown into what is now a model program for the rest of the country, exhibiting the best student artwork and writing of the region in the FWMoA galleries. 

The exhibition features hundreds of paintings, drawings, sculptures, graphics, photographs, mixed-media projects, and all genre of written pieces, each expressing topics that inspire creative teens today.”

The exhibit will be on display through Saturday, April 11. For more information about the exhibit and admission to the museum, visit
