Youth Art Collective Exhibition

April 24 – June 30, 2013
MMA Pacific Street Youth Art Galleries

The Youth Arts Collective, (Y.A.C.), is a non-profit after school organization that provides mentorship and art studio space for young Monterey County artists between the ages of fourteen and twenty-two. The afternoon program stays open year round and offers to students the opportunity to work in a nurturing environment with a variety of materials for creative experimentation and practice. Since its inception in 2000, YAC has been operated by devoted artists, teachers, and founders Marcia Perry and Meg Biddle, as well as mentors Hanni Liliedahl Silacci, Andrew Jackson, and Jim Dultz.

The annual exhibition in the Youth Art Gallery at the Monterey Museum of Art—Pacific Street features artwork from each Y.A.C. member with a wide range of styles, concepts, and mediums such as painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography or mixed-media, that reflect the interests and talents of each artist.
