Middle School Art Exhibition

The Middle School Art Exhibition is hosted by Artspace 304 in conjunction with Art for All, arts education advocacy group. The participating schools are Anna CCSD 37, DuQuoin Middle School, Eldorado Middle School, Harrisburg Middle School, Murphysboro Middle School, Shawnee District #84, Trinity Christian School, Unity Point School, and Zeigler Royalton Elementary School. 

Also on view during this exhibition is the first session of “Our World, Many Lenses”. This after-school art program for middle school students is made possible through the Foreground Rural Initiative Grant through Illinois Humanities Council. The session took place during the month of March at Cobden Unit School District 17 with teachers Margarita Bartolo and Jeremy Crawford. The art activities emphasized self-expression, storytelling, and embracing diverse perspectives through narrative drawing and painting.

These exhibitions run April 21 – May 6. A closing reception will be held Saturday, May 6th from 2-4pm. This event is free and open to the public.
