Middle School Student Artwork Featured at Morean Art Center
April 14, 2017
The annual event, sponsored by the Hough Family Foundation and Pinellas Community Foundation, is in its 20th year. It challenges students to create works of art based on a particular theme, and to incorporate a written statement within the piece. This year’s theme was “On My Block.” After the student artwork is submitted, a jury selects the top pieces for display at the Morean Art Center, located in St. Petersburg.
The Morean hosts four of these juried exhibits each year, including work from students at the elementary and high school levels.
Here are the middle school students who were selected to display their artwork.
