Youth Art Galleries

Youth Art Galleries

Kennesaw State University’s Bagwell College of Education, School of Art and Design's Art Education Program, and Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art have joined together to create two high-profile Youth Art Galleries on the University campus.

The galleries are located in Kennesaw Hall and the new Chantal and Tommy Bagwell Education Building. Each location has 30 ready-made frames where pre-K to 12th grade educators can showcase their students' artwork. The exhibitions are rotated three times a year. Spring and fall rotations highlight KSU student teachers and alumni while the summer rotation is open to any Georgia teacher.

These galleries serve as inspiration for KSU students, faculty members, and visitors alike. Inclusion in any exhibition block is competitive and will be determined by the KSU stakeholders.
