The Saginaw Arts & Enrichment Commission presents the Celebrating Saginaw’s Cultures: Building Unity through Diversity Student Art Exhibit Award Winners, as part of Art @ the Andersen. The exhibit will be on display now through February 28, 2019 at the Andersen Enrichment Center, 120 Ezra Rust Drive, Saginaw and will be open for viewing from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday – Friday. 

Winners were selected from the multi-cultural art exhibition of more than 350 pieces showcasing the talent of Saginaw Public School students, grades 3 – 12, who worked on creating a piece of artwork for the exhibit and competition over a multi-week period. Students developed their composition using the elements of art and the principles of design and included a statement of learning with each piece of art. Categories included drawing, painting, design, 3D functional, 3D non-functional, and body adornment.

Art @ the Andersen project was established by the Saginaw Arts & Enrichment Commission to give artists the opportunity to showcase their work and to introduce the community to the abundant creativity in the Great Lakes Bay Region and throughout the state. Individual pieces on display may be available for purchase.

Art @ the Andersen exhibition is made possible with the support of the Saginaw Arts & Enrichment Commission, Saginaw Public Schools, Nexteer, The Jury Foundation, Frances Goll Mills Fund, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the Harvey Randall Wickes Foundation. For more information call the Saginaw Arts & Enrichment Commission at 989.759.1363.
