Excellence in Maine Visual and Performing Arts

  • December 08, 2017

Twice a year the Maine Arts Commission and the Department of Education recognize Excellence in Maine Visual & Performing Arts. To celebrate the occasion, 89 student exhibitors have their work displayed at the Maine State Capitol Complex. On December 6, 2017 three school districts from Westbrook, Camden-Rockport and the Blue Hill region were recognized with live performances and a certificate ceremony. The event featured performances from the Westbrook School Chamber Singers, directed by Suzanne Proulx, and the Blue Hill Middle School Band, directed by Bill Schubeck. First Lady Ann LePage presented certificates to the student artists along with Martha Harris, Chair of the Board of Education and Julie Richard, Executive Director of the Arts Commission. The student artwork will remain on display until February 2018. View each student's work and location that it's displayed here.  More information about the Excellence in Maine Visual & Performing Arts can be found on our Arts Education webpage.  Photos by Ryan Leighton.
