Experience the Eighth Annual MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit Local High School Students Showcase More Than 110 Works of Art
LANSING — If you haven’t yet experienced the MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit, stop by MSUFCU Headquarters in East Lansing from Feb. 1 through 25 to see the talent from our young local artists. Artwork from 15 mid-Michigan high schools will be on display with students hoping to earn your votes.
“We love this event,” said April Clobes, Executive Vice President/ Chief Operating Officer Michigan State University Federal Credit Union. “Our local students are very talented, and we are excited to be able to share their work with our community. I hope everyone is able to visit this year and cast their votes for their favorite pieces.”
The 15 participating high schools may showcase up to 10 pieces of artwork. This year’s participating schools are Bath, Charlotte, DeWitt, East Lansing, Everett, Fowlerville, Grand Ledge, Haslett, Holt, Lansing Christian, Mason, Okemos, St. Johns, Waverly, and Webberville.
The public is invited to the lobby of the MSUFCU Headquarters to view students’ artwork and vote all month long. You can also view the artwork and vote online starting Sunday, Feb. 1, at www.msufcuart.com. Votes help determine the People’s Choice Awards and a School Spirit Award, given to the high school that draws the most voters.
Prizes include $300 for first place winners, $200 for second place winners, $100 for third place winners and cash prizes for 10 honorable mentions. One student will also be awarded a $50 Social Media Award for gaining the most “likes” on the MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit Facebook page.
Panel of Judges includes: Alice Brinkman, Director of Reach Studio Art Center; Brian Whitfield, Graphic Artist at the Michigan Department of Transportation; and Debbie Mikula, Executive Director of Arts Council of Greater Lansing.
