Now in its 34th year, the Young Artists exhibition showcases the extraordinary talents of aspiring artists. More than 400 artworks by high school students from over 40 schools across Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Dutchess, and Fairfield counties will fill the KMA galleries.This unique program gives teens the opportunity to work behind-the-scenes to produce a museum exhibition. In the course of many months they take on the roles of graphic designer, curator, exhibition designer, art installer, and artist as they collaborate with professionals to produce this impressive exhibition. The winning invitation was designed by Anna Lao from White Plains High School in this year’s Graphic Design Workshop.

A father embraces a son. Two friends lock arms on an afternoon stroll. A couple clutches in the dark corner of a nightclub. All of these images and more are captured in the KMA’s exhibition, Picturing Love. By turns disarmingly candid and unabashedly performative, the photographs in the exhibition examine how love is captured – and indeed at times bestowed – by the act of taking a picture. In the present moment of virtual like, love, and swipe, when all aspects of public and private life circulate in seemingly endless supply on the Internet, the exhibition takes a step back to look at the formidable history of this subject from photography’s early days to the present moment.
Our spring programming is replete with learning opportunities centered on the history of documentary and narrative photography for both adults and children. Organized by KMA Executive Director, Darsie Alexander, with Dolmatch Fellow, Olga Dekalo, the exhibition features some fifty works from a range of periods and genres.
