Highlight Hollywood supports all venues of the entertainment industry, from politics to sports to cinema to fine arts. This year, we again have the exclusive rights to introduce our readers to the 25 Best Museums And Galleries In America, as designated by the American Art Awards. The AAA board, headed by president Thom Bierdz, known globally as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless and painter of the BLUE X paintings, chooses only one museum or gallery per state per year. Their selections are based on years established, industry reputation, location, size, socially relevant exhibits, motivational and educational programs, represented artists as well as artist, client and visitor references.

 

Bierdz explains, “In the past, American Art Awards has honored well over a hundred museums and galleries. We study thousands each year and have selected 20 of our 25 for 2016. This year we award some enormous museums with historical significance of 100+ years, some with 100,000 square feet of exhibition space, some with 100,000 objects. We also select some of the most reputable and/or popular galleries, with different specialty genres. We also chose a few regional art centers making an impact on their communities offering inspiration and education.”
