Fast on the heels of the Meow Wolf art col­lec­tive’s $7,000-plus cash-in at SITE Santa Fe’s in­au­gu­ral SPREAD fundrais­ing din­ner and pre­sen­ta­tion on March 18, Young Cu­ra­tors — a weekly af­ter-school and sum­mer pro­gram sup­ported by SITE Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Ro­tary Foun­da­tion — un­veils its lat­est ex­hibit. Young Cu­ra­tors pro­motes an in­ter­est in con­tem­po­rary art among teens and young adults and teaches cu­ra­to­rial skills to high-school stu­dents.

SITE Santa Fe ed­u­ca­tion/cat­a­log man­ager Joanne Lefrak said the cu­ra­tors have as­sem­bled work that ex­am­ines hu­man emo­tions in In­side the Heart, which com­prises work by lo­cal, re­gional, and na­tional artists aged 12 to 19. “In this ex­hibit,” she said, “the artists in­ter­pret emo­tions vis­ually and ex­plore their in­ner­most feel­ings through the medi­ums of paint­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, video, draw­ing, and sculp­ture.”

For the show, the cu­ra­tors re­viewed more than 150 sub­mis­sions and ac­cepted 45 works by 30 stu­dent artists from Monte del Sol Charter School, La Cueva High School, Santa Fe High School, Albuquerque Academy, El­do­rado Mid­dle School, and Santa Fe Prepara­tory school. The cu­ra­tors — El­iz­a­beth Allen, Daniel Estrada, Paloma Mankus, Ali­son Penn, Rahul Shinde, Diego Suarez, Se­dona Walker-Mor­ris­sey, and Liana Wood­ward — hail from El­do­rado Mid­dle School, La Cueva High School, Monte del Sol Charter School, New Mex­ico School for the Arts, and Santa Fe High School.

In­side the Heart opens at the Santa Fe Univer­sity of Art and De­sign’s Fine Arts Gallery (1600 St. Michael’s Drive, South­west An­nex, next to Fo­gel­son Li­brary) with a re­cep­tion from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m on Fri­day, March 25. The ex­hibit is open through April 1. For in­for­ma­tion, call 989-1199.
