D211 Post: PHS Art Students to Display Work in State Art Exhibition


            Twenty-five Palatine High School students will be among the best 1,000 student artists from more than 125 Illinois high schools to showcase their art and vie for more than $43,000,000 in college scholarships at the 5th annual Illinois High School Art Exhibition (IHSAE).

            Currently, the Palatine seniors have collected more than $2.3 million in scholarship funds with more scholarship applications being processed.   The students’ artwork is on display now through March 9, at the Zhou B Art Center and Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood.

            The exhibition’s main general exhibition event on Sunday, February 25 will feature ceremonies, early college scholarship announcements, awards presentations, and college recruitments at the Zhou B Art Center and senior scholarship announcements at the Bridgeport Art Center.

            The IHSAE includes multiple display venues beyond the Zhou B Art Center, the sole host partner for the first three years, because of its burgeoning success. Some 4,000 students, teachers, college representatives, and school district administrators are expected to attend the state’s largest high school student art exhibition that is also widely considered the gold standard amongst high school student art exhibitions nationwide.
