SPECIAL EVENT 2015 Elementary School Art Show, City School District of Albany

The museum is hosting a special exhibition of elementary school art. Tonight, we're offering free admission and showcasing student performances in addition to the art!

The Albany Institute of History & Art is delighted to partner with the City School District of Albany to present this wonderful showcase of student talent, featuring visual art works by students from each of the twelve Albany elementary schools. Our 2014 exhibition included two-and three-dimensional works produced by 150 students selected by their art teachers for this special exhibition.

We will offer free admission on May 1st from 5-8 PM when the student’s visual art works will be joined with performances from the Strolling String Students, Recorder Ensemble, Minstrels, School Dance Team, and Flute Ensembles. Performances will be held in the galleries and the atrium.

This exhibition grew out of our service with the Superintendent’s Arts Advisory Committee that was formed in order to build creative relationships and share resources with stakeholders, community organizations, and arts professionals. It is supported by Dr. Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard, Superintendent, the Times Union, the City School District of Albany Booster Club, and the Albany City Council PTA.
