ART Exhibits

Artistic Inquiry Registration 
Grades K - 12 
April 6, 2019 
Main Street Center, Nevada County Fairgrounds 

The STEAM Expo Arts Team is looking for art in any medium that shows an artistic process of inquiry and observation. The process through which all Arts are created is akin to the processes of the Sciences. All endeavors in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math rely on the creativity and innovation of the Arts. The arts can be the inspiration to start scientific inquiry, and they can also provide the tools to bring all the elements of STEM together to express, produce, and create ideas. The Arts also stand alone, as observations and expressions of the world around us and within each one of us.

Entries must be submitted electronically (if it is a physical piece, we need to know the dimensions of the piece) no later than March 15, 2019 to Kristanne Heaton at kheaton@nevco.org.
