The 18th Annual Ingham Student Art Exhibit is coming soon! Lansing Art Gallery, the Michigan Leadership Group*, and Ingham ISD host this celebration of excellence in the visual arts.

This competition is open to all students within the Ingham ISD service area. Student artwork created during the 2017-18 school year is eligible. Each participating school is allowed up to 20 entries. From eligible entries, a qualified juror will select 60 works of art to be professionally framed and exhibited for one year in a professional partner facility. These include the lobbies of the Michigan Education Leadership Group in Lansing, Ingham Intermediate School District in Mason, and new this year, within Lansing Art Gallery’s Student Art Gallery and partnering businesses in the area. Lansing Art Gallery curates both exhibits and designates at which facility the artwork will be shown.
