KOKOMO, Ind. — The best artwork created by Kokomo area high school seniors will be featured in the Indiana University Kokomo Art Gallery.
The 18th annual High School Art Show opens with a reception and awards ceremony from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, in the Art Gallery, in Upper Alumni Hall. Awards will be presented at 5 p.m.
Susan Skoczen, gallery director, said student artists from north central Indiana are invited to submit their work for display during the show. It includes artwork from seniors at Taylor, Peru, Kokomo, and Tri-Central high schools.
"This show gives area high schools the opportunity to come together and showcase their students' work," Skoczen said, "It's more of a public venue for the work to be seen by many, not just other students at their own schools. It is also a chance for the student artists to see what their peers are creating at other schools."
The show continues through June 15. The Art Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sunday, Monday, and Friday. Free parking is available on campus.
