Event details

The Alliance for the Arts exhibition, The Future of Art: High School Exhibit, will be on display in a virtual gallery through the Alliance for the Arts website, ArtInLee.org, beginning May 1. Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Alliance for the Arts and Lee Arts Educators Association moved the exhibition to a digital submission process and virtual viewing room to ensure the health and wellness of the greater community.

This year the arts are more important than ever. The arts can heal, process complicated emotions and communicate love and compassion to others. With the school year cut short and students losing the many opportunities to exhibit their work and celebrate their artistic accomplishments, the Alliance for the Arts wanted more than ever to support the young artists of our community.

This is the 28th year the Alliance has partnered with Lee Arts Educators Association (LAEA) and the show features artwork from thirteen area high schools and hundreds of works in a variety of mediums. This year’s Judges are Dana Roes, Sorsha, Mike Kiniry, Stephen Hayford, and Ehren Gerhard.

Winners will be selected in several categories including painting, drawing, photography, digital art, mixed media, sculpture and functional ceramics. Best in Show will be awarded a four year art major scholarship to Florida Southwestern State College. Join us on Friday, May 1 at 6 p.m. for the awards presentation on the Alliance for the Arts Facebook page.

Participating schools include:
Bonita Springs High School, Cape Coral High School, Cypress Lake Center for the Arts, Cypress Lake High School, Estero High School, Fort Myers High School, Ida Baker High School, Island Coast High School, Lehigh Senior High School, Mariner High School, North Fort Myers High School, Riverdale High School and South Fort Myers High School.

This exhibit is sponsored by Florida SouthWestern State College.
