Student Art on Display at the Tyler Museum of Art
Tyler Museum of Art will showcase its largest display of student artwork ever, beginning Sunday, March 31.
According to the Tyler Paper, 109 students from 20 high schools will have their work displayed and professionally curated juried. This is the 15th year of the exhibition.
This year a group of four volunteers donated their time to create frame the nearly 100 works which will be on display. Education Coordinator, Lisa Horlander ,said her work wasn't framed professionally until college.
"There’s a feeling of pride knowing what it looks like in a professional setting," Horlander said.
The exhibit was made possible through a National Endowment for the Arts grant and the Ralph & Mary John Spence Exhibition Fund, according to TMA Communications Coordinator Jon Perry.
In addition to the juried awards for seniors, the exhibit also has a viewer’s choice award, which visitors can vote on once a day. The exhibit is a popular one that draws many visitors from school field trips to family members of students.
