The topic of student art exhibitions has gained considerable attention over
the past few years, due in part to publication of The educationally
interpretive exhibition: Rethinking the display of student art (Bass, Eisner,
Hanson, Cotner & Yacoe, NAEA 1997). The display of student art is much more
than pictures on a wall and eye pleasing arrangements; a text conveys a great
deal about the ideas and accomplishments of both teachers and students. New
thinking on goals and methods of student art exhibitions allows us to more
thoughtfully construct that text and invites educators to share ‘best
Section A brings together three chapters that present cultural and historical
perspectives; these provide a context for discussing student exhibitions.
Comparisons can be made in the way exhibitions are planned and organized in
Australia, Canada, and the United States. Comparisons can also be made when
reflecting upon the prevailing attitudes and current, leading edge ideas
about art and education from the 1950’s to the present.
Section B presents three thought-provoking chapters about students as curators
. These are both child centered and discipline oriented as authors take
lessons from the way children display collections in their own rooms, and
develop programs that bring museum practices and museum professionals
together with students and classrooms.
Section C explores some of the practical issues of planning and presenting an
exhibition. Two of the chapters describe ambitious collaborative projects
that could serve as a model for similar, future endeavors.
Section D reveals some of the significant changes occurring in the field of
art education. As educators, we often have priorities and objectives that
differ from those of commercial and public galleries. Exhibitions can be used
to inform the public about artistic development, organizing curriculum,
teaching, and the need for public support for art programs in schools. Two
authors contribute to this section on pedagogical exhibitions and advocacy.
Section E looks outside the classroom to consider new venues. One author
describes initiatives for on-site projects within the community. Another
looks to the World Wide Web and setting up virtual galleries. The presents an
innovative and multifaceted program that brings together professional artists
and students in a school district-owned and operated art gallery.
