Art.Write.Now.Tour 2014-15, a nationwide traveling exhibition showcasing more than 130 original pieces of art and writing from the talented teen winners of the 2014 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, will open on February 21, 2015 at the CAS Arts Center at 48 Main Street in Livingston Manor, NY. Free and open to the public through March 22, the exhibit hosts student work from around the country, including works by local writer Sarah Mughal from Vestal Senior High School and artist Maxwell Vonderhorst, a graduate of Warwick Valley Middle School.  

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the country's longest-running and most prestigious scholarship and recognition program for creative students in grades 7–12, received more than 255,000 submissions during the 2014 program year. These emerging artists’ and writers’ works were first adjudicated on the regional level, then again on the national level by leading creative professionals. This year’s exhibited works were curated by artist and Scholastic Award alumna Kay WalkingStick, whose career retrospective will open in 2015 at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. In addition to WalkingStick, many famous figures won Scholastic Awards as teens and ultimately went on to become cultural icons, such as Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath, Zac Posen and Lena Dunham. 

The Art.Write.Now.Tour 2014-15 is presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers and funded by the generous support of Scholastic Inc., The National Endowment for the Arts and Blick Art Materials & Utrecht Art Supplies.  Now in its 5th year, the tour made its first stop at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, followed by a stop at the Salt Lake City Public Library in UT. The exhibition presented by the Catskill Art Society in Livingston Manor, NY will be the tour’s final stop. For more information, please visit www.artandwriting.org/art-write-now-tour.
