Youth Art Expo 2020 – Betsy Lueke Creative Arts Center

April 2 - May 15

The City of Burbank Parks & Recreation Department and the Burbank Fine Arts Federation are excited to announce this year’s Youth Art Expo, The Great ARTdoors. This event is open to all Burbank students grades K – 12th. Over 1700 total submissions were received from 100 teachers throughout Burbank. The top 235 pieces were chosen to be featured in this year’s show.

In years past, opening receptions were held to celebrate the featured artists culminating in awards ceremonies. This year’s Youth Art Expo is truly unique and one that aims to bring people together at a time when we are unfortunately not able to gather physically to celebrate these incredibly talented artists. In light of this, we have presented this year’s show through digital means bringing The Great ARTdoors to everyone’s home. Please visit www.burbankca.gov/yae2020 to enjoy the online gallery showcasing all 235 featured artists, a virtual video tour taking everyone on a brief journey throughout our gallery, as well as a video celebrating the 18 award-winning artists.    

While enjoying The Great ARTdoors exhibit, viewers may notice an abundance of butterflies throughout the gallery. In an effort to include as many students into this year’s show as possible, each student was encouraged to decorate their own butterfly to be displayed in the show. A friendly reminder that each student has the ability to blossom with opportunity and encouragement. Thank you to all the students who helped transform the gallery into a vibrant and creative space!  

The 2020 Youth Art Expo is co-sponsored by the City of Burbank’s Park and Recreation Department and Fine Arts Federation.  The Fine Arts Federation is a non-profit organization that supports the Arts in Burbank and continues to be a huge help behind the scenes.
