Opening: All-City Elementary School Visual Arts Exhibition
Wednesday May 1st 2019, 4:30 pm–7:00 pm
Art and design share many of the same building blocks. By making art, students are also practicing communication, creative problem-solving, risk-taking, and self expression. This year, the Design Museum of Chicago has the opportunity to exhibit work by hundreds of Chicago Public School students.
All-City Visual Arts Programs provide a unique opportunity to showcase student achievement in visual and media arts and exhibit their work in highly-visible, public exhibition spaces in Chicago. The high school exhibition showcases 2D, 3D, and digital artwork by students in grades 9–12 and the elementary exhibition features work by students from pre-K through 8th grade.
Come prepared to enjoy artwork and hear music from Chicago’s talented youth, and draw a self-portrait which will be integrated into the exhibition.
