Gallery 200 to feature work of West Chicago District 33 students
WEST CHICAGO — West Chicago School District 33 art teachers will showcase the talents of their students in a new venue, Gallery 200, located on Main Street in downtown West Chicago.
In celebration of Youth Art Month, the student show, titled “Art is the Heart of the City,” will be open to the public during the month of March.
The public is invited to a free opening reception for the show from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. Students, family, friends and faculty will be on hand to share their enthusiasm for the arts programming in the District and the community at large.
The student art exhibit will consist of artwork from Pioneer, Turner, Indian Knoll, Currier, Wegner and Gary Elementary Schools as well as West Chicago Middle School.
The theme was chosen by the District 33 art teachers to emphasize the value of participation in art for all children.
