The Erickson Center for the Arts 6th Annual Student Art Show is underway and will continue until March 27.  This showcase contains a large variety of artwork provided by students of all ages from Tahquamenon Area Schools, Three Lakes Academy, Engadine Consolidated Schools, and local home-schooling programs.

The purpose of this exhibit is to demonstrate how essential art is as a part of a child’s education. Patrons of the show will be given a chance to vote for the “People’s Choice Award” presented to one student from each of the schools at the end of the exhibit. A student reception will be held Sunday, March 15 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Parents are encouraged to bring their students so that they can represent their work in the exhibit.

The Student Art Show can be seen during regular business hours, 10:00 a.m.  4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and is free to the public.
