A celebration of artistic accomplishments

For the past five years, the District 186 visual arts program has partnered with the Springfield Art Association (SAA) to highlight the artistic accomplishments of the district's students with special needs. The "ART is Exceptional" exhibit is a celebration of those accomplishments. The artwork – over 60 pieces of two- and three-dimensional works by students from several schools – helps to highlight the scope of the partnership which seeks to bring art into the community as a means of inclusivity, support, enrichment and equity for the local students. The exhibit is open during regular gallery hours and runs through Jan. 26. Call the SAA or visit the website at springfieldart.org or for more information.
