EXHIBITING STUDENT ART
Order No. 268
"Student Art Exhibitions: New Ideas and Approaches"
Bill Zuk and Robert Dalton, Editors.
The display of student art is much more than pictures on a wall and an eye
pleasing arrangement; this is a text that 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 practices.' Student Art
Exhibitions: New Ideas and Approaches includes sections on: cultural
and historical perspectives; students as curators; planning and
presenting an exhibition;
pedagogical exhibitions and advocacy; and new venues on the web.

intended to help people understand the relationships between thinking and the
creation of visual art. The 28 full-color images throughout the booklet
illustrate how the exhibition was arranged and constructed; the final
section of 47
"General and Theoretical Quotes" is especially helpful for literature
pertaining to cognitive and artistic development. It makes a useful
arts education, advocacy, and educational reform i.e., state standards,
