Local students honored at 31st annual High School Art Exhibit

BCPS High School Art Exhibit 2017TOWSON, MD – Baltimore County Public Schools students earned honors at the awards reception for the 31st Annual High School Art Exhibit, held at Goucher College in Towson.

In welcoming guests to the exhibit reception, Sherri Fisher, BCPS visual arts coordinator, said: “The artwork in this exhibition represents every high school across Baltimore County. It represents the best of our art students, our educators, and Baltimore County’s commitment to visual arts education. The work you see tonight is the result of great effort and dedication both of art students and their teachers. We would not be standing in here in amazement of these complex and creative artworks had it not been for these students’ art experiences in a robust sequential PreK through Grade 12 program.”
