The Art.Write.Now.2015 National Exhibition features the most creative visual and literary art by teens from across the country, identified through the prestigious Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

Judges for the 2015 Awards included Wangechi Mutu, Andres Serrano, Julie Mehretu, Jon Kessler, Rashid Johnson, and Nikki Giovanni. The Art.Write.Now.2015 National Exhibition spanned two locations and showcased more than 1,000 of the freshest and most relevant visual and literary works from students nationwide in grades 7–12. Art.Write.Now.2015 provided valuable insights into what issues are on the minds of teenagers through film, animation, 2D and 3D artwork, literature, video games, performance art, and more from the Scholastic Awards categories.

These creative teens follow in the footsteps of past Scholastic Awards recipients Andy Warhol, John Baldessari, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Edward Sorel, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, Ken Burns, and Kay WalkingStick, as well as many others.
