Annual Juried Youth Exhibition
Since 2006, MOPA has held an annual juried exhibition showcasing the photographic talents of local youth. Every year, students are encouraged to submit work that responds visually to a particular theme. The winning entries are selected for their creativity and artistic interpretation of that year’s topic.
Magic & Myth
On view now through February 19, 2023!
MOPA’s 16th Annual Juried Youth Exhibition showcases the bold creativity of local youth artists. Students in grades K-12 throughout San Diego County and Tijuana were challenged to explore the theme of Magic & Myth through photography and video.
This year’s theme resulted in visions of worlds beyond our grasp, tales shared over generations, and glimpses through the cracks of our known reality. These youth artists show us that a world of wonder has always been present within the realm of storytellers, spellbinders, and dreamers among us. It would do us all well to spend more time here.
Congratulations to the student artists selected to be part of MOPA’s 16th Annual Youth Exhibition Magic & Myth!
