Each year, McPherson College invites Kansas high school students to exhibit their best art and compete for prizes and scholarships at the Art POP exhibition in Friendship Hall at the college. This year, a record number of high schools, art teachers, and students are participating in the exhibit.
Art from 15 schools statewide includes more than 100 art pieces from students and high school art teachers. This is the first year that the exhibit has featured the work of both students and their teachers. Student work will be juried by Tim Stone, painter and part-time art instructor at Wichita State University. A closing reception and award ceremony are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 17, from 5:30-7 p.m., with awards announced at 6 p.m.
The exhibit features artwork from high school students attending Concordia, Garden City, Smoky Valley (Lindsborg), Hesston, McPherson, Canton Galva, Belle Plain, Hutchinson, Goessel, Inman, Kinsley, Salina Central, Moundridge, and Free State (Lawrence).
The exhibit is open to the public during regular business hours, Monday-Friday, through Nov. 17.
