For the second year in a row, the CPS Department of Arts Education staff, a team of CPS visual arts teachers, and Design Museum of Chicago have worked to shift our in-person Elementary and High School Visual Arts Exhibitions to an online format. The exhibitions feature 2D, 3D, and time-based artwork by PreK-12 students from across the district.

We are so incredibly proud of the 1000+ elementary and high school students from over 250 CPS schools whose artwork was selected to feature in these online exhibitions! We also extend our deepest thanks to the teachers, administrators, parents, and family members who submitted work on behalf of these students or encouraged them to independently submit their work.

If you cannot find a student’s artwork in the exhibition, please search the site by the student’s school name.

Any student who did not turn in a completed media release form will have their work displayed anonymously. To have a student’s name associated with their work, please complete this media release form and email it to allcityarts@cps.edu. We will continue to update the site on a rolling basis.
