U. S. Department of Education, Military Child Education Coalition to Open Art Exhibit

The U.S. Department of Education will host the Military Child Education Coalition’s art exhibit of creative works by students titled America’s Children. The opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. ET, Friday, March 3 in the Department’s auditorium.

The event will showcase works from U.S. military-connected students in grades 2–12 from across the U.S. and Guam, Puerto Rico, Belgium and Germany. Also featured will be musical performances and the Armed Forces Color Guard, along with remarks by Brigadier General (Ret) Earl Simms.

The Department’s Student Art Exhibit Program, now in its 14th year, 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.
