The public is invited to the opening reception of the annual Portland Public Schools Student Art Show at City Hall on Friday, May 3. The artwork of hundreds of talented Portland Public Schools students in kindergarten through grade 12 is being exhibited this month in the halls of City Hall, located at 389 Congress St.

The artwork will be on display until May 23. The Student Art Show kicks off with an opening reception this Friday, May 3, during the city’s First Friday Art Walk. The reception will run from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Students’ musical abilities also will be on display during that event with a 4 p.m. performance by students in the Portland Public Schools Orchestra program.

The annual show is an opportunity for the public to learn about the creativity, intelligence, artistic abilities and social awareness of students in the Portland Public Schools. The show also showcases how the district’s dedicated art teachers foster student creativity and talent.

 The show features artwork from both younger students and older students. Visitors can see creative and compelling works from each grade and also get a sense of students’ growing artistic capabilities as they mature.

The artwork is displayed in the lobby areas of the first and second floor of City Hall. The public can view the artwork whenever City Hall is open. General building hours for administrative offices are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the building is often open in the evenings as public meetings are held there.
