High-schoolers’ art on view at museum


April brings art from three area high schools to the Springfield Museum of Art.

The “Art Connect High School Exhibit” brings exemplary work of students from Springfield High School, Shawnee High School and the Springfield Career Technology Center to the Beach Gallery.

The exhibit is free and open during museum hours through April 29. Adult admission fees will apply to the museum’s other galleries.

“One of the most rewarding outcomes of renewing our focus on art education is engaging the community with the museum in a wide variety of ways. We are honored and delighted to share these two exhibitions of student art work with the community,” said the museum’s executive director, Ann Fortescue.

“The breadth of expression from these young artists is remarkable but not unexpected, given the number of gifted artists and art teachers in our region,” Fortescue said.

The schools involved are members of the Greater Springfield CareerConnectED Consortium. The project has three primary goals that include:

To connect learners across districts through authentic and in-depth exchanges of ideas among students from various schools in Clark County aspart of the Consortium.

To showcase visual art program offerings and examples of excellence from 9th-12th grade Clark County students.

To create opportunities for real world experiences of Project Based Learning and College & Career Readiness through participation in this partnership program with the Springfield Museum of Art.

Also available at the museum are works from Springfield City School students from Warder Park Wayne and Snowhill Elementary Schools in the Conference Room Gallery.

The museum will open a new exhibition, Jennifer Rosengarten, “Gardens & Ponds,” in the Deer Gallery beginning Saturday, April 22.
