U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts


YoungArts marked another spectacular multi-day event last month as winners, teachers, alumni, friends and supporters gathered in Washington, D.C. for A Celebration of the 2011 U.S. Presidential Scholars.

Artworks were on full view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, launched by an opening on June 19. YoungArts winners in Writing and Cinematic Arts followed with live readings and screenings of their work. On Monday evening, June 20, the U.S. Presidential Scholars gave an unforgettable performance at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

For the occasion, YoungArts received a major boost from PBS, which “live streamed” the performance via the network’s Facebook page. The partnership came as a result of PBS’ commitment to increasing access to the arts. If you missed it, "A Salute to the 2011 U.S. Presidential Scholars" is now available on Watch the video.

Read more and view performance photographs on the YoungArts Facebook page.

Congratulations to our 2011 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts!
