LANSING, MI – On May 2, 2023, the 23rd Annual Ingham Student Art Exhibit was presented. The annual event is held as three separate receptions highlighting artwork chosen for display at Ingham Intermediate School District (ISD), the Michigan Education Leadership Group (MELG) and Lansing Art Gallery and Education Center (LAG).

The Ingham Student Art Exhibit is a competition open to all students within the Ingham ISD service area. Each participating school is allowed to submit up to 20 entries of artwork created by students during the current school year.

The winning artwork is then on display for one year in the lobbies of Ingham ISD, MELG or LAG. Artwork is also available for viewing at Ingham ISD.
