Marshall University College of Arts and Media Presents: Portfolio, which is designed to showcase the exemplary artwork of middle school and high school students in the Tri-State region of West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.
This exhibition provides a venue for the serious student to build a portfolio for advanced study, while giving the younger student an opportunity to participate in a high-quality exhibition. It is an excellent way of recognizing aspiring artists as well as the art teachers in the region. Each year, a judge selects 13 winners. Each winner receives an award and has his or her artwork posted on the museum’s website. To view winners from the past few years, click on the appropriate year at the bottom of this page.
Portfolio is generously presented by the Marshall University College of Arts and Media; with additional support from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History; and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
