The 2023–24 School Art Shows feature some of the finest artwork created by students in many Middle Tennessee school districts. Elementary and middle school art teachers select two works per grade level, and high school art teachers select two works per course. Hundreds of talented young artists from kindergarten through twelfth grade are included in each school district’s exhibition.

We are proud to work with these districts to feature the student’s artwork. The exhibitions are located in the Education Corridor on the Frist’s Upper Level.
