89th Annual Robert T. McKee Student Art Contest & Exhibition


On View: February 20, 2020 - March 29, 2020

Celebrate the arts in education during the 89th Annual Robert T. 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.

The 2020 annual county-wide student art show opens on February 20th. All San Joaquin County K-12 teachers will be invited to drop off artwork on February 6-7 3:30 – 5:30 pm and February 8 from 2:30 – 4:40 pm, 2020.
