Maine Excellence in Arts Education
The Maine Arts Commission honors arts education by curating student art exhibits featured throughout the Maine State House Complex. Maine Excellence in Arts Education recognizes the high quality of visual and performing arts by hosting a celebration that includes a reception for students and teachers alike.
Starting in the fall of 2018, the Arts Commission features rotating exhibits that combine student work with their respective art teacher's work. The December 2018 program includes a student exhibit showcased throughout the State House Complex.
Please consider submitting your students' artwork. The exhibition guidelines are located here. If you are interested in displaying artwork, please contact Martha Piscuskas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
