My Books Weight a Ton by Katie Steiner

32nd Annual Student Art Show

The 32nd Annual Student Art Show runs March 7 through April 11 at the Bloomingdale Park District Museum.


The exhibition provides an opportunity for the public to view the work of talented students in local schools. Students from kindergarten through high school use a variety of materials and techniques to create dynamic 2-D and 3-D works.


This highly-popular show is a great introduction for young artists, some of who've exhibited as students and returned years later to exhibit again as adults.


A reception for the exhibit is scheduled between 1 and 4 p.m., March 15. Mr. Twister will be on site to entertain with his custom balloon creations.
