88th Annual McKee Student Art Contest & Exhibition

On View: March 14, 2019 - April 28, 2019

Celebrate the arts in education during the 88th Annual McKee Student Art Exhibit, the longest running student art exhibition in the country! This event features the work of student artists from kindergarten through grade 12. The exhibition was first envisioned by founding patron Robert T. McKee, whose goal was to encourage students by providing a public venue for their artwork. All schools in San Joaquin County—public, private, charter, parochial and home-schools—receive invitations to submit their work.

On average, Haggin receives 1,000 pieces of art chosen by the teachers as the best in their class. The Museum’s Tuleburg and West galleries will be filled with two- and three-dimensional artworks created in crayon, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, oil and acrylic paint, photography, and other mediums.

Opening Reception:

Saturday, March 16, 2019, 1:30 – 3 pm
This year the Museum will hold a welcome reception for students, their families, and teachers on March 16th. This event is FREE to everyone and sponsored by the Junior Women’s Group of the Haggin Museum who will provide punch and cookies to the guests.

The 2019 annual county-wide student art show opens on March 14th. All San Joaquin County K-12 teachers will be invited to drop off artwork February 28, March 1 & 2, 2019.
