The annual Albuquerque Public Schools Metro Youth Art Exhibit, featuring the work of high school and middle school students, opens Friday, Feb. 21, from 4 to 7 p.m. and runs through Friday, March 13.

The event is at the Berna Facio Professional Development Complex, 3315 Louisiana NE.

Awards will be presented during a closing ceremony beginning at 5:30 p.m. March 13.

The APS Fine Arts Department organizes this juried exhibit. Jurors are artists and educators with experience and expertise in particular categories. Advanced art students also serve as jurors to select one piece in each category to receive the Students’ Choice Award.

Ribbons will be awarded for first through third place in each category as well as for honorable mentions.

One student will be selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship from the UNM College of Fine Arts.

Merit awards also will be handed out.

The City of Albuquerque Public Arts Program is expected to continue its tradition of purchasing several pieces from the show to become part of the city’s permanent collection. Bernalillo County also selects some pieces.

Exhibit hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays, Feb. 29 and March 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Parking is free.
