St. Petersburg, FL
Educating children about the arts, and offering them access to gallery and exhibition space, has been a key component of our mission at the Morean Arts Center. Since 1998, we have worked with Pinellas county schools to create this series of exhibitions. The Morean hosts four of these juried shows each year, including work from students at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
Each year, students are challenged to create works of art based on a theme, and to incorporate a written statement within the piece. Limited only by their imaginations, these children’s creations are sometimes hilarious, often heartfelt, and always extraordinary.
