Cincinnati Public Schools City Wide Art Exhibition

Cincinnati Public Schools City Wide Art Exhibition

Visit the Main Library to view works by some of the city’s most talented young artists. “The Cincinnati Public Schools City Wide Art Exhibition” showcases artwork, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs, from Cincinnati Public School students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The exhibit is presented in partnership with Cincinnati Public Schools and will be on display in the Main Library’s Atrium from March 1 through April 20.

The City Wide Art Exhibit has a long tradition dating back to the early 1970s when it began at the Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company. Now displayed at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, each Cincinnati Public School art teacher is encouraged to submit four exemplary artworks created by their students during the current school year.

Explore the world of Italian architecture through a display drawn from the Library’s collection of Renaissance through 19th century rare books. Photographs of local buildings featuring Italianate architecture in Cincinnati, and neighboring cities of Newport and Covington, accompany the exhibit.
