Calling young artists!

CHARLESTON, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - The Art of Discovery Youth Art Exhibit, in conjunction with the City of Charleston Piccolo Spoleto Festival, returns this year and your child’s work could be on display!

Children grades 4 through 12 are invited to share their work for consideration. If chosen, it will be on display as part of this annual art exhibit hosted by NAMI Charleston and Charleston Dorchester Mental Health Center. They are looking for artwork that speaks to the personal challenges, struggles, and triumphs young people deal with every day. The deadline to submit is May 11th.

The curated exhibit will be on display daily from May 27th through June 12th at the Circular Congregation Church. Artists will be recognized on May 28th from 4-6 p.m. with a special walk-in reception featuring food and music.
