2021 mARTie Awards Honor Student Artists for Their Talent, Creativity

The Arts Foundation for Martin County's 35th annual Marvin S. Cone High School Juried Arts Show and 18th annual mARTies Awards were held recently, allowing young artists in our community the opportunity to be publicly recognized for their talent and creativity. 

 

This year's mARTies Awards ceremony was held at the Barn Theatre, allowing nominated students the opportunity to perform and exhibit their artwork to their family, friends and members of the community in attendance.  Each student award recipient earned a $500 scholarship.  

 

Artwork submitted by students for the Marvin S. Cone High School Juried Art Show will be on display May 4 through May 27 at the Court House Cultural Center in downtown Stuart. 

 

Please join us in congratulating this year's student nominees and award winners (category winners listed in red).
