Notifications of acceptance into the exhibit will be sent by email to the student's teacher or guardian on February 16, 2024. Teachers with accepted student artwork for the exhibition will work with Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center Staff to obtain parent/guardian permission for the exhibition. Artwork without parent/guardian permission will not be exhibited.
Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center Education Staff will work with teachers and our parent/guardian, with accepted work, to create a plan for artwork drop-off. Artwork drop-off will take place March 1 - 2, 2024. Coordination of obtaining student work will be determined at that time.
The Ingham Student Art Exhibit will be shown at the Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center from April 3 - 27, 2024, then the artwork will be taken to the three other off-site locations and held there for the year. The opening reception for the Ingham Student Art Exhibit will be held at the Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center on April 11, 2024.
Each location will hold a closing reception in April of 2025 where we will celebrate the students for having their artwork juried and shown for a year, following the reception the artwork will be able to be picked up and taken home that day.
