Student Art Exhibit Program
The U.S. Department of Education’s Student Art Exhibit Program, in operation since 2004 under the direction of the Office of Communications and Outreach and the Office of Innovation and Improvement, features visual art created by students in U.S. and international schools. The program provides students and teachers an opportunity to display creative work from the classroom in a highly public place that honors their work as an effective path to learning and knowledge for all. The works also provide Department employees and visitors with both a beautiful environment and the means to be in touch with the Department’s principal customers—students.
The program features two exhibits at all times throughout the year: The winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are exhibited for a year beginning every August, and another exhibit, rotated every two to three months, accommodates the many educators who want to exhibit their students’ work. Exhibits are currently booked through 2015. To schedule a visit to the exhibits contact Nicole Carinci at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 202-453-5585, and to learn more about the exhibiting opportunity contact Jackye Zimmermann at email@example.com or at 202-401-0762.
