Children's Art Exhibition

Once again, Northern Michigan University and the DeVos Art Museum will host the annual Children's Art Exhibition. The show will begin on Monday, May 8 and end on Sunday, May 28. Many of our students will have art on display, and there will be an artist reception on Friday, May 12 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. If they have work in the exhibit, they will receive a poster from NMU with more information. This is a wonderful display of art from all area schools, and everyone may attend!
