While enjoying the Wild About Art! exhibit, viewers may notice an abundance of safari animals throughout the gallery. In an effort to include as many students into this year’s show as possible, each student was encouraged to decorate a safari animal to be displayed in the show. This is a representation of how each student has the ability to blossom with opportunity and encouragement. Thank you to all the students who helped transform the gallery into a vibrant and creative space!

The 2022 Youth Art Expo is co-sponsored by the City of Burbank’s Park and Recreation Department and Fine Arts Federation. The Fine Arts Federation is a non-profit organization that supports the arts in Burbank and continues to provide instrumental support behind the scenes.
