Word & Image: Did You Ever See…?

October 26, 2017- April 8, 2018

Educating children about the arts, and offering them access to gallery and exhibition space, has been a key component of our mission at the Morean Arts Center. Since 1997, the Morean has worked with Pinellas County schools to create Word & Image: Arts and Education Partnership. The Morean hosts four of these juried exhibits each year, including work from students at the elementary, middle and high school levels.

Each year, students are challenged to create works of art based on a particular theme, and to incorporate a written statement within the piece. Past years’ themes include “Let Freedom Ring,” “On My Block,” “Superheroes,” and “Celebrating Harmony.”

This year’s theme is Did You Ever See…? Students were asked to convey, through visual art and the written word:

What’s the most amazing or interesting thing you’ve ever laid eyes on? Something scary, something funny, something that was hard to believe? Using words and images, tell us what your eyes have seen!

Limited only by their imaginations, these children’s creations are sometimes hilarious, often heartfelt, and always extraordinary.
