Students at the Word & Image Exhibit

 

Art created by elementary school students was selected for the 2017-18 Word & Image Exhibit. The annual exhibition combines art and writing into one work of art.

 

Each student created a work of art and written personal narrative that depicted this year's theme, “Did You Ever See." The exhibit features works by students at schools that begin with the letters A through M. Their artwork will be on display at the Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave in St. Petersburg, through March 17.
