Main Library exhibit showcases students artwork from Cincinnati Public Schools
03/01/2014 - 04/20/2014
Visit the Main Library to view works by some of the city’s most talented young artists. The Cincinnati Public Schools City Wide Art Exhibition will showcase artwork, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs, from Cincinnati Public School students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The exhibit is presented in partnership with Cincinnati Public Schools and will be on display in the Main Library’s Atrium from March 1 through April 20.
The City Wide Art Exhibit has a long tradition dating back to the early 1970s when it began at the Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company. Now displayed at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, each Cincinnati Public School art teacher is encouraged to submit four exemplary artworks created by their students during the current school year.
The show represents four grade level groups, K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. Each piece of artwork submitted is entered into a media category. There are eight media categories including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, crafts and graphic design.
The student’s work is judged by artists, art educators and other professionals related to the field of art. The work is judged for its originality, unique presentation or use of materials and the skill demonstrated in creating the artwork.
Each student receives a certificate and blue ribbon for having their work chosen to hang in the atrium’s display cases. Special awards are presented to gold seal winners and best of show winners in each grade level division. These awards are presented during an evening ceremony by the Board of Education in May.
The Main Library is located at 800 Vine Street. Visit www.CincinnatiLibrary.org or call 513-369-6900.
