The Irvine Fine Arts Center is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 High School Art Exhibition, presented online through May 14.

An annual exhibition that highlights and supports the City’s youngest creatives, this year’s High School Art Exhibition has been adapted to a virtual format and will be presented entirely online at Artworks featured in this year’s exhibit include drawings, painting, ceramics, digital media works, and illustrations. Themes explored by the featured young artists include family, friendship, identity, ecological and social concerns, as well as the challenges and triumphs of the unprecedented past year.

Participating schools in this year’s exhibition include: Beckman High School, Crean Lutheran High School, Irvine High School, Portola High School, University High School, and Woodbridge High School.

This year’s exhibition is guest juried by Virginia Broersma, a Los Angeles-based artist whose engagement with the art community involves curating, writing, collaborative projects, public art, and organizing support for artists, along with her studio practice. She has exhibited at museums, galleries, and alternative spaces in Los Angeles, Berlin, Tokyo, New York, and Chicago, among other U.S. and international cities.

The Irvine Fine Arts Center, located at 1432 Yale Ave., remains closed to the public, but appointments for current exhibitions are available. For more information on the annual High School Art Exhibition, call 949-724-6880 or visit
