Once again, DUMA was proud to present the Dubuque Citywide All-School Student Art Exhibition. Nearly 250 student artists from Dubuque’s public and parochial schools showcased their talents and their work throughout the Museum’s galleries during the exhibition. Participating students ranged in age from kindergarten to 12th grade, and each student was selected by the art teacher from their school.
This exhibition is an important way for the Museum to support our local, young artists as well as our art educators. “The Museum is all about supporting local art and artists. In all that we do, we strive to create an atmosphere throughout the community that welcomes creativity and self-expression. This exhibition is a great way to recognize all of the talent and hard work that happens in our school art programs each and every day,” said Museum Director Mark Wahlert. Additionally, the art teachers and some of the students helped install the exhibition. We are grateful to our sponsors, to the numerous school administrators and educators, to the parents and, of course, to our student artists for working together on this tremendous exhibition opportunity.
