You know what they say — children are the future. This idiom is best illustrated by the 81st Detroit Public Schools Community District Student Exhibition. Despite massive cuts to Detroit’s public school art programs, artistic students persevere with the support of the exemplary teachers working tirelessly to encourage self-expression. Explorations of imagination and visions of the future, as shown by students grades K-12, the exhibit will feature hundreds of works in a wide range of mediums including paint, print, drawings, photography, ceramics, video, jewelry, and more. 


The 81st Annual DPSCD Student Exhibition opens on Saturday, April 14 and will run through Sunday, May 13 during museum hours at the Detroit Institute of Arts; 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org; Exhibit is free with general admission.
