Local students from 18 Lansing area high schools showcase more than 180 works of art

If you haven’t yet experienced the MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) Student Art Exhibit, stop by MSUFCU Headquarters in East Lansing from Friday, Jan. 26 through Wednesday, Feb. 28 to see the talent from our young local artists. Artwork from 18 mid-Michigan high schools will be on display with students hoping to earn your votes. 
“We love hosting this annual event that draws more excitement and participation every year,” said April Clobes, chief executive officer of MSUFCU. “Our local students amaze me with how talented they are. I hope everyone is able to visit this year and cast their votes for their favorite pieces.”

The 18 participating high schools may showcase up to 10 pieces of artwork. This year’s participating schools are Bath, Charlotte, DeWitt, East Lansing, Eaton Rapids, Everett, Fowlerville, Grand Ledge, Haslett, Holt, Laingsburg, Lansing Christian, Mason, Okemos, St. Johns, Waverly, Webberville and Williamston.

The public is invited to view students’ artwork and cast their vote starting Jan. 26. Voting ends Friday, Feb. 23. You can also view the artwork and vote online at msufcuart.com or on the MSUFCU Art Exhibit Facebook page. Votes help determine the People’s Choice Awards and a School Spirit Award, given to the high school that draws the most votes.

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. Three local artists will judge the students’ artwork.

You may visit the exhibit in the lobby of the MSUFCU Headquarters at 3777 West Road in East Lansing during normal business hours: 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The winners of the Student Art Exhibit will be announced at a special awards ceremony at MSUFCU headquarters on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 6 p.m.
