+++ Each year, YoungArts introduces the public to the next generation of artists across ten disciplines. Typically presented at New World Center and the YoungArts Campus, the 2021 program will be presented for free online. The 144 artists showcased throughout the week, all YoungArts award winners at the Finalist level, the organization's highest honor, have been selected through a prestigious national competition and chosen by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process.

From January 3-9, the artists will participate in an intensive program of online classes and workshops with internationally recognized leaders in their fields, and will record and develop their work for National YoungArts Week +. Starting Monday, January 25, you will get the chance to meet these accomplished young artists from across the country in a six-part series of free virtual performances, writers’ readings and an exhibition.
