The Mississippi School of the Arts congratulates junior and senior visual artists, including a senior literary, for their awarded achievements in the 2019 Scholastic Art Competition. The works of these talented young artists receiving American Vision Nominee, Gold, and Silver Key will be on display at the Mississippi Museum of Art February 9 through March 24 during museum hours. Students receiving Honorable Mention will have works displayed in Enochs Gallery at Mississippi School of the Arts.

Students from all over Mississippi compete in the Mississippi Regional Competition, submitting works in painting, mixed media, illustration, photography, printmaking, fashion, and more. The submissions are juried by artists in the field. Among the thousands of artworks submitted, only a small percentage will go to the national level. Jurors look for works that exemplify the Awards’ core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. Works awarded American Vision and Gold Key status will advance to the national competition.

This year, students at Mississippi School of the Arts received 2 American Vision Nominations, 24 Gold Keys, 18 Silver Keys, and 43 Honorable Mention awards.
