Student Exhibits


The Cape Ann Museum invites local visual and industrial arts programs to contribute a month-long show to our ongoing Activity Center exhibits. For students and educators alike, this program is an exciting way to acknowledge young artists and share their spectacular visual arts work.


Program at a glance:

  • Our annual school year series runs October to August. Each exhibit hangs for one full calendar month in the CAM Education Room.
  • During your month, we host an afterschool reception to welcome artists and their families; artists also receive a complimentary pass to bring family and friends to the museum at a future date.
  • You are provided with one cork display board that measures 4' x 8' and an 8'' x 11'' horizontal panel for wall text. In determining the number of pieces to provide for exhibit, please allow adequate space between works. Upon request, pedestals are available for three-dimensional art. With advance planning, all three corkboards could be reserved by one group. Note: Framed art must be wired for hanging.
  • Once your month is confirmed, mark your calendars! Please deliver artwork to Cape Ann Museum the last Wednesday of the preceding month. For example, works for December 2017 should be delivered November 29, 2017. Timely delivery helps us arrange the gallery and send effective press releases.
  • Kindly return the written student exhibit form or complete the Google Form as soon as possible to secure your first or second choice of date. We will contact you to confirm the final schedule.
