ESD 123 is proud to announce the expansion of our regional art exhibit.  For the first time in our history, we are hosting a regional teacher art exhibit, as well as a middle school art exhibit at our facilities in Pasco!  This yearlong rotating art display begins with a call for entries open May 2-31, for all regional K-12 public and private school educators.

ESD 123’s new Regional Teacher Art Exhibit is a significant step toward our agency’s goal to showcase art education year-round. Now in its 45th year, the annual high school art show has been a long-standing event for ESD 123, in partnership with Columbia Basin College and as part of the State Superintendent’s Art Show.  However, ESD 123 has long desired to expand our support of arts education by featuring more artists at multiple grade levels, and in ourown facilities.

ESD 123 Superintendent Darcy Weisner knew the 2017 expansion of the ESD’s Professional Development Center offered a unique opportunity for the ESD’s additional space to serve as a ‘blank canvas’ to display the work of talented school artists.

“Our ESD serves as a hub for school districts to access a variety of services that support students and teachers,” states Superintendent Weisner. “Arts education is one of those services, and it begins with the passion and dedication of art teachers in our schools.”

The ESD Regional Teacher Art Exhibit call for entries is available May 2-31, and is open to all certificated public and private school employees working in the ESD’s twenty-three school districts. Complete details and forms are available on our website at www.esd123.org/programs__services/art_show. The exhibit will be on display at ESD 123 from June 5 to September 21.

Following the teacher exhibit, we will host our first middle school art exhibit from October through January. More details and information on this showcase will be announced over the summer months.
