The 2019 Honors Visual Art Exhibition Features Student Artwork at The M

The Minnesota Museum of American Art (The M) is featuring some of the best artwork created by SPPS students now through Sunday, May 26, at a free exhibition. The 2019 Honors Visual Art Exhibition celebrates the achievements and creativity of more than 60 student artists from each SPPS high school. High school visual art teachers selected student artwork based on the criteria of artistic merit, creativity, originality, execution, and Control of the Medium.

Students also wrote artist statements to explain their inspiration and thought process while creating their art. The works in this exhibition demonstrate students’ pathways to artistic self-discovery using applied technical skills, unique ideas, and experimentation with materials and processes.
