Emerging National is an annual exhibition of the Museum of Arts and Sciences that showcases national artists whose work is developing into the forefront of the art world. Professional contemporary artists, representing some of the nation’s most exceptional undergraduate and graduate art programs, display works ranging from large-scale abstract paintings and mixed media installations to ceramic sculpture. Guests can expect art created in various platforms to captivate their imaginations throughout spring. The Museum of Arts and Sciences hopes regular visitors will come to see something new and new visitors will be drawn to experience the entire museum after seeing this unique exhibition.

The Night with the Artists is a special Cocktail Reception, to benefit the Museum of Arts and Science, that includes gallery talks with the Emerging National Artists, an opportunity to purchase the exhibited works, open bar, and heavy hors-d'oeuvres.
