Eligible Artwork

We invite young artists to explore and celebrate their favorite experiences at Glen Echo Park through visual art and imagine new memories they’d like to make here.

We are seeking artwork that depicts Glen Echo Park in some way – perhaps a program, or activity or a unique space – it’s up to you!   What makes Glen Echo Park special for you? 

Artists will include a brief description about why the artwork and what they are depicting at the Park is meaningful for him or her.


Artwork may be representational or abstract.   The exhibition is open to both two-dimensional and three-dimensional work. Open to all young artists. Work does not need to have been created in a class at Glen Echo Park.
