“We love showing the work of school-age artists; thanks to support from our Express Yourself! Justin Ferrari Youth Arts Fund we have the resources to make this exhibit a fun, annual event,” said Lisa McDermott, Carnegie Arts Center Director. “This year we have a special section dedicated to the many original creations for our 2023 banner contest on the theme of family. The winning art created by local students has been on display throughout downtown Turlock since the fall. Now, all the designs submitted for the contest are on display in this exhibition.”
