Paintings, drawings, pottery, jewelry, photography and more by students in grades K–12
Hundreds of imaginative works created by Detroit Public Schools (DPS) students will be on display at the 79th annual “Detroit Public Schools Student Exhibition,” presented by the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). The exhibition, on view April 30 through June 5, is free and will be held in galleries on the east end of the museum, near Kirby St.
An opening reception for students and their families will be held Saturday, April 30, beginning at 1 p.m. in the Detroit Film Theatre auditorium at the DIA.
Students from 22 schools in grades K–12 submitted ceramics, collages, drawings, videos, textiles, jewelry, paintings, photography, prints, sculpture and other works to a jury of local artists, retired DPS educators and DIA staff, which selected the more than 270 pieces included in the show.
