Regional Highlight: Milwaukee Art Museum (WI)
This exhibition highlights the creative work of students from the Milwaukee Art Museum who received regional Gold Keys in the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The iconic Gold Key—earned over the years by artists from Andy Warhol to Lena
Dunham—is the highest distinction given at the regional level of the Scholastic Awards.
After blind adjudication of more than 4,500 submissions across multiple art categories, the Milwaukee Art Museum honored student Scholastic Art Award recipients and their educators with three ceremonies and a large exhibit of more than three hundred artworks.
The Milwaukee Art Museum has hosted the Scholastic Art Awards for 42 years, serving as the statewide Art Affiliate for Wisconsin. Their commitment to providing consistent and significant support and encouragement to students and their educators with enormous care and passion is remarkable. The Milwaukee Art Museum received the 2018 Gold Key for Excellence in the Field Award, presented annually to an outstanding Affiliate Partner of the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. The Alliance is proud to feature the dedication that our partner demonstrates by presenting the Milwaukee Art Museum Regional Highlight at the U.S. Department of Education.
