Sponsored by Blick Art Materials
The City of Philadelphia’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 9th annual A+ Art student art exhibition at City Hall. A+ Art samples some of the most accomplished art from Kindergarten to Grade 12 representing all 10 City Council Districts. Over 200 works were selected from the School District’s end-of-year Young Artists showcase, which is regularly held at the district’s administration building on Broad Street. A+ Art 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 will be scheduled for mid-September during National Arts Ed Week.
Since 2014, Blick Art Materials has generously awarded gift cards to art teachers featured in A+ Art in excess of $60,000. 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.
