10×10 Teen Art Expo at The Cincinnati Art Museum

Each year The Cincinnati Art Museum engages young artists to display their artwork at the 10×10 Teen Art Expo.

This year, because the museum is closed, they were unable to display the amazing work from youth all across our region. Instead, the museum will present the first-ever digital expo. This year, artists were asked to respond to the topic of “Dreams.” Our Lady of Visitation Seventh graders Megan M., Hannah K. and Lily T. have artwork on display in this virtual exhibit.
