Call for student artwork

For over ten years, the Maine DOE and the Maine Arts Commission have been fortunate to celebrate excellence in Maine visual and performing arts education by hosting rotating student art exhibits. These exhibits celebrate the high quality of visual art education in Maine.

This year, the Department and Commission are combining efforts to provide these rotating exhibits that will be displayed throughout the State House complex and in the Department of Education. Each district will display 24 pieces, so please reach out to the other art teachers in your district.

During the period student artwork is displayed, the artists and their families will be invited to the Hall of Flags for a Celebration of Excellence in Visual and Performing Arts Education reception at a later date.

The Department and the Maine Arts Commission will recognize each student for their accomplishments. The reception will feature performances from the districts represented in the art show.
