Best of the Best
Jackson and Josephine County High School Student Art
Sponsored by: Pacific Power
Best of the Best is an exhibit the museum hosts every three years. It is an exhibit that is enjoyed by all. Seeing what our young people can create is an inspiration and a joy.
This year, 13 high schools from Josephine and Jackson County participated. Teachers brought 132 wonderful pieces of art for the exhibit. There is everything from ceramics to digital, collage to oil paintings.
Special care was taken to ensure the integrity of the art. This program is orchestrated by the Pre-College Program and Dual Credit department at Southern Oregon University. It started four decades ago.
Participating schools include:Armadillo Technical Institute, St. Mary's School, Crater Renaissance Academy, Rogue River, Eagle Point, North Medford, South Medford, and Phoenix High Schools from Jackson County.
In addition, from Josephine County are Grants Pass, Hidden Valley, North Valley, and Illinois Valley High Schools.
