The 17th Annual Ingham Student Art Exhibit is coming soon! Lansing Art Gallery, the Michigan Leadership Group*, and Ingham ISD host this celebration of excellence in the visual arts.

This competition is open to all students within the Ingham ISD service area. Student artwork created during the 2016-17 school year is eligible. Each participating school is allowed up to 20 entries. From these entries, a qualified juror will select 40 works of art to be professionally framed and exhibited. The winning artwork will be displayed for one year in the lobbies of the Michigan Education Leadership Group in Lansing and Ingham ISD in Mason. Lansing Art Gallery curates both exhibits and designates at which facility the work will be shown.
