The Mill hosted its second Youth Art Exhibition in January 2015. Eleven high schools from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, both public and private, elected to participate. They are: Central Bucks East (Buckingham, PA), Central Bucks West (Doylestown, PA), Holy Ghost Prep (Bensalem, PA), Council Rock South (Holland, PA), George School (Newtown, PA), Pennsbury High School (Fairless Hills, PA), New Hope-Solebury High School (New Hope, PA), Ewing High School (Ewing, NJ), The Pennington School (Pennington, NJ) and The Hun School (Princeton, NJ).
The Art Department at each school was invited to submit up to 12 student works for the exhibition. 101 works were displayed, including painting, watercolor, mixed media, pastel, graphite, photography and sculpture.
The Youth Art Exhibition was open for three successive weekends in January, opening on January 17 and closing on February 1. The awards ceremony was attended by more than 250 artists and their guests.
