On Feb. 2, student artists were awarded 254 individual Gold Keys which forwards them on to the National Scholastic Art Awards Competition, and 139 Silver Keys, which allows for statewide recognition of their work.
"It is a privilege to see the work of these young artists and to be a part of their experience in the Scholastic Art Awards," said Daniel Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. "With so much talent, I have no doubt that choosing the winners was hard for our jury, and I look forward to seeing some of these same artists competing again next year."
