Animals Among Us: 11th Annual Youth Exhibition

through Feb 5
8 Oct, 2016 - 5 Feb, 2017

Inspired by the San Diego Zoo's 100th anniversary, MOPA's 11th Annual Youth Exhibition focuses on the theme of animals.

We encouraged K-12 students in San Diego County and Tijuana to creatively explore the topic of animals and submit photographic or video art for a chance to be part of the exhibition. We had a record 473 exceptional submissions with 105 selected to be in the exhibition.

See more images at the extension sites and on the digital monitor in MOPA's gallery!
