Dearborn Schools City-wide Student Art Show Runs Until May 29

The 2018 Dearborn Public Schools City-Wide Student Art Show is free and open to the public through May 29 at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. The show features an

impressive variety of creative work by students in elementary through high school from across the city.

The show opened during the Youth Arts Festival April that showcased vocal, instrumental, theatrical and visual arts talents of more than 400 students of all ages.

“The Youth Arts Festival and City-wide Art Show is a great demonstration of how many of our students are involved in the arts,” notes Dearborn Public Schools Art Resource Teacher Susan Briggs.  “It’s exciting for everyone involved because this is the one time during the year that all of Dearborn’s public schools showcase their arts initiatives at one time, in one place.”

A special feature of the Student Art Show is an impressive array of art by four high school seniors whose work art teachers selected to be featured in exceptional “Senior Artist” exhibits in the Padzieski Gallery at The Center.  Senior Artist Fatima Taj from Fordson High School, who also is Fordson’s valedictorian, will attend Harvard University in the fall. Senior Artist Gina Bertini from Dearborn High School, Lauren West from Edsel Ford High School, and Markie Grygorcewicz from Michael Berry Career Center, all plan to continue their art education at College for Creative Studies in Detroit.

The student artwork can be viewed in the lobby at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, during regular hours of operation and in the Padzieski Gallery which is open Tuesday through Friday, 12-6 p.m. and before select theatre performances.

The Youth Arts Festival and City-Wide Student Art Show is a partnership project by the Dearborn Public Schools, Dearborn Community Fund (DCF), Henry Ford College and Dearborn Community Arts Council with support from the City of Dearborn. For more information, call the DCF at 313-943-5478 or visit www.dearborncommunityfund.org.
