Founded in 1981 by Lin and Ted Arison, YoungArts identifies exceptional young artists, amplifies their potential, and invests in their lifelong creative freedom. YoungArts provides space, funding, mentorship, professional development and community throughout artists’ careers. Entrance into this prestigious organization starts with a highly competitive application for talented artists ages 15–18, or grades 10–12, in the United States that is judged by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process.

YoungArts exhibitions feature work by artists across generations, created in a range of mediums and often at different stages in their careers. Curated around the most urgent and relevant themes of our time, exhibitions are organized by respected curators and artists in the field. Past curators have included Derrick Adams, Robert Chambers, Maritza Lacayo, Lisa Leone, Franklin Sirmans, Jasmine Wahi and Rosie Gordon Wallace.
