Junior Art Museum: Interdisciplinary artist Lou Watson, who was scheduled to show a new project at Disjecta in May this year, has instead refocused her efforts on this digital gallery for kid-made art. There are several different exhibitions kids can take part in—portraits, inventions, maps, games and the great outdoors—and the Junior Art Museum (JAM) takes rolling submissions; kids can snap a photo or a scan of their work and email it to Watson with the title, where they are located in the world and a description to have it featured in the online gallery. There’s also a blog, where Watson and other regional artists write quick-hit how-tos for young artists.
The project is designed to give kids a platform to share the art they are making during sheltering-in-place, and also see the art that kids from all around the world are making. All submissions are posted in the online gallery and also featured on Watson’s instagram pages, as JAM has a strict “no rejections” policy!
Send submissions to Lou Watson.
