From SPS Communications:
Seattle Public Schools middle and high school students will have 209 art works in a broad range of media on display at SAM Downtown starting April 22. Students participating in this year's exhibition have taken courses in visual arts led by Seattle Public School's visual arts specialists. Various media and techniques – including ceramics, pencil, oil and acrylic painting, collage and photography – are on view. The exhibition – displayed in the museum’s free zone in the first floor corridor – is named after Floyd J. Naramore, an architect who designed more than 22 Seattle Public Schools from 1919 to 1941.
Along with the show, SAM will host a special celebration during its May 15 Family Day to honor the SPS student artists on their show’s closing weekend, and to offer awards to high school level artists selected by the community judges. For the May 15 Family Day, SAM is offering all students exhibiting work in the Naramore Art Show free admission to the museum galleries. SAM is also providing one free gallery admission to all SPS employees who show SPS ID and one free gallery admission to the first 500 SPS students who show ID. Additionally, SAM will offer bus reimbursements to ensure transportation to the event is accessible to SPS families citywide. The Family Day activities are free to the public.
