Why did YouthCAN receive one of 15 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program (NAHYP) Awards out of a pool of over 400 youth arts programs from across the country?
Join us for an NAHYP Awards Celebration and Opening Reception for YouthCAN’s latest exhibition, “From the Ground UP,” to find out. You’ll see the incredible art our high school students created which is why we’re being recognized, such as these LPs spray painted with personal crests:

Who has style and where does it come from? From the Ground Up explores the origins of style among Asian Pacific American youth. High school and college aged artists present their personal style and visions of the street in original graffiti prints.
