Following a 28-year tradition, the Alliance for the Arts and the Lee Arts Educators Association have partnered to present and feature artwork from area schools. This year, the annual exhibition and award ceremony, The Future of Art, has gone digital due to the impact of COVID-19. The show features artwork from thirteen area high schools and hundreds of works in a variety of mediums.

The Alliance and LAEA hosted a virtual award ceremony Friday, May 1, via the Alliance for the Arts Facebook page. This year's judges were Dana Roes, Sorsha, Mike Kiniry, Stephen Hayford and Ehren Gerhard.
