ArtX was a juried art competition and exhibition for all high school students, grades 9 – 12, who attend school or live in Claremont, California. Public, private and home‐schooled students were invited. As long as a student lives or attends school in Claremont, and is receiving an education equivalent to the 9th through 12th grade level, he or she were eligible to enter this competition. Cash prizes were awarded. This year’s 7 winning works plus 14 honorable mentions were displayed by the Claremont Museum of Art April 24 – May 3, 2009.
