Art Express

If you live in NSW, Australia you really must try and get to Art Express. It is the display of the highest scoring major art works submitted by students for their HSC (Higher School Certificate). I went in 2003 and it was one of the most amazing art exhibitions I have ever been to. You have to keep reminding yourself while viewing it that all the art was made by 17 and 18 year olds. I still get goosebumps when I think about the quality of the work and the messages many of them carried.

Please go if you can - you will always remember it and there is no better example of the power of youth.
