An exhibition I can really get behind. Always lovely when major institutions support the artist efforts of area youth and celebrate their ingenuity and verve.

The Annual Detroit Public Schools Student Exhibition features more than 300 works of young artists, from kindergarten through twelfth grade, in a range of mediums including drawing, ceramics, collage, fibers, and jewelry, among others.

The 73rd Annual Student Exhibition was organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts and Detroit Public Schools and is made possible with the support of the Ruth T. Cattell Education Endowment Fund, the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the City of Detroit. Additional support provided by General Motors Corporation, JP Morgan Chase, and MASCO Corporation.

On view at the Detroit Institute of Art through May 30, 2010.
