This inaugural event was an opportunity for students to receive recognition and exposure for their artwork in a professional environment. The exhibition also was a tribute to the art teachers who inspire and refine their students’ talents.
The exhibit featured 78 original two- and three-dimensional works representing art programs at eight high schools. Ten high schools within a 20-mile radius of the Jacoby Arts Center were invited to participate. The artworks on display were created as part of the school curriculum and chosen by the schools’ art instructors.
Participating high schools included Alton High School, Civic Memorial High School, East Alton-Wood River High School, Edwardsville High School, Jersey Community High School, Marquette Catholic High School, Roxana Senior High School and Southwestern High School.
The exhibit was sponsored by American Water and Illinois American Water. Karen Cooper, manager of business services at American Water in Alton, provided the funding.
