DeVos Art Museum hosts annual Children’s Art Exhibition

MARQUETTE —¬†Each year the DeVos Art Museum celebrates area schools that support art programs for students.

This annual exhibition, featuring talented K-12 students creating artwork in all different forms, was organized by the hardworking art teachers from local schools. The event allows these students to get out and not only show off all their hard work but to also express themselves out to the public.

“So it is really smart to engage your child in arts because it makes them this well-rounded, thoughtful and observant person,” explained Emily Lanctot, DeVos Art Museum Director, Curator, & Outreach. “Students are so smart and they really understand really what these art works are saying and they can really relate to them as well.”

The event starts tonight at 5 pm and will go to 8 pm at the DeVos Art museum and is open to the public. This exhibition runs from May 6th- 26th and there will also be two other exhibitions.

These exhibitions include the permanent collection called, “Everyday Sublime and NMU Alumnus April South-Olson’s exhibit called, “Points of Interest.”
