City Hall, Second and Fourth Floors, northeast hallways 
Sponsored by Blick Art Materials

The City’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE), in partnership with Blick Art Materials and the School District of Philadelphia’s Office of the Arts and Academic Enrichment, presents the 10th annual A+ Art student art exhibition.  A+ Artsamples some of the most accomplished art of public school students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 representing all 10 City Council Districts throughout the city. 

This year, the works of approximately 300 students are on display at City Hall. They were selected from the School District’s end-of-year Young Artists showcase, which is regularly held at the district’s administration building.  A+ Art highlights numerous works on paper, including paintings, prints, drawings, collages, mixed media and more. The exhibit is located on the second floor of City Hall near the Office of the Mayor, and on the fourth floor near City Council Chambers. A reception is scheduled for September 13th during National Arts in Education Week

Since 2014, Blick Art Materials has generously awarded gift cards to art teachers featured in A+ Art in excess of $70,000. The award provides teachers access to quality art supplies in support of their outstanding work with their students. This year, each of the 20 schools will receive $500 in gift cards for a total of $10,000.
