70th Annual Detroit Public Schools Student Exhibition

Saturday, March 31, 2007 – Saturday, May 05, 2007

  • For Everyone
  • Family Friendly

For seventy years, the Detroit Institute of Art has collaborated with the Detroit Public Schools on bringing the best of student art works to the public. The Seventieth Annual Detroit Public Schools Student Exhibition is on view from March 31 to May 5 at the main Detroit Public Library. Students from kindergarten to twelfth grade submitted works in all mediums—drawing, ceramics, collages, and jewelry, to name a few—to a panel of judges. The top creations were awarded a place in the exhibition.

The Detroit Public Library is located at 5201 Woodward, across the street from the museum. Hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, noon to 8 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission to the library is free.

The Seventieth Annual Detroit Public Schools Student Exhibition was organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Public Schools and is made possible with the support of the Ruth T. Cattell Education Endowment Fund, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the City of Detroit.
