High Life Art Exhibition

The City of Dublin partnered with the Dublin Arts Collective to bring the "High Life" art exhibition to Splatter for the first time on September 10, 2022. Due to the success of the exhibit and the enthusiastic response from the community and young artists the event is slated to return to the festival next year, 2023, while also extending the catchment area to youth from across the Tri-Valley.

The goal of the “High Life” Art Exhibition is to foster artistic endeavor in young artists aged 14 and older (or in grades 9-12) considering creative careers and will be open to students enrolled in High School (public or private) including Tri-Valley Art Schools. The pilot event was restricted to the Dublin area and due to the excellent artwork submitted students from other Tri-Valley cities will now also be eligible to participate.
