The Alliance for the Arts April exhibition, The Future of Art: Student Exhibits, will be on display from April 3 – April 26 at 10091 McGregor Blvd. Fort Myers, FL. This is the 27th 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 3 from 5 – 7 p.m. and the show will remain on display until April 12. High school works will be exhibited with a second opening reception on April 17 from 5 – 7 p.m. and will remain on display until April 26. 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. This exhibit is sponsored by Florida SouthWestern State College and Pediatric Dentistry of Fort Myers.
“This is an important opportunity for school age artists,” says exhibition coordinator Krista Johnson. “When we encourage young artists, we’re encouraging them to have confidence in their ideas. Bring your families and explore the imaginations of students in Lee County – every piece of art is a piece from our future artists, engineers, scientists, celebrities and senators!”
