The Alliance for the Arts April exhibition The Future of Art will exhibit from April 4 – April 29. This is the 25th year the Alliance has partnered with Lee Arts Educators Association (LAEA) to display student work in a formal exhibit. The show features more than 40 schools and hundreds of works in a variety of mediums.
The elementary and middle school students opening reception will be on April 4 from 5-7 p.m. and the show will remain on display until April 14. High school works will be exhibited with a second opening reception on April 20 from 5 – 7 p.m. and will remain on display until April 29. Winners will be selected in several categories and Best in Show will be rewarded. Pizza for the high school reception will be provided by Downtown House of Pizza in Fort Myers.
LAEA is a group of art teachers who recognize and promote students who show interest and aptitude in visual arts. The exhibit is sponsored by Pediatric Dentistry of Fort Myers.
“This is an important opportunity for school age students,” says exhibition coordinator Krista Johnson. “Showing student art can engage and energize families, schools and communities.”
