Emerging Young Artists Juried Exhibition

The first Emerging Young Artists (EYA) exhibition was held in the CVPA Campus Gallery at the College of Visual and Performing Arts in Spring 2013. Since then the EYA has evolved to become an important CVPA tradition as a highly competitive annual high school juried exhibition that showcases the talents of New England’s young artists. The EYA is juried by the Dean of CVPA and culminates in the exhibition reception and awards presentation with hundreds of guests.
