  2. All School Exhibition

    April 8, 2017, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Weisel and Kelly Galleries

    Every March, in celebration of Youth Art Month, the Springfield Art Museum invites student artists from across our community, in kindergarten through 12th grades from public, private, parochial, and home school groups to exhibit outstanding artwork in the "All School Exhibition." This highly anticipated show has been a staple of our exhibition schedule for well over forty years. Artwork created by children and teenagers is often relegated to education wings or hallways when it is displayed in museums. By showcasing students' work in one of its primary gallery spaces, the Springfield Art Museum seeks to highlight the importance of arts education and honor the accomplishments of young artists, as well as their incredibly talented teachers, many of whom are practicing artists themselves.
