Shirley Hall Youth Art Show 2024
March 1 @ 5:00 pm - March 3 @ 4:00 pm

For over 30 years, the Art League of Ocean City has featured artwork by Worcester County middle and high school students for an annual youth art show. Cash prizes awarded! Celebrate “National Student Art Month” and support these talented young artists. Exhibit Dates: opening reception Friday March 1, 5-7pm. Exhibit continues Saturday and Sunday March 2-3, 11-4pm.

Originally sponsored by the Women’s Club of Ocean City, this annual youth art show was coordinated by Shirley Hall who was an active member of the OC Women’s Club and former Art League president. When the OC Women’s Club disbanded, the Art League continued to coordinate the yearly youth show as it was central to the organization’s mission. When Shirley passed away in 2006, the Art League renamed the show in her honor. The show will be judged by Shirley’s daughter Betsy Hall Harrison, who will award cash prizes on behalf of her family members.
