Students in grades PreK–8 from any CPS school (including district-managed, charter, contract, and options schools) are encouraged to submit work.

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 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.
