On Saturday, April 30, more than 446 pieces of artwork created by local elementary and middle school students will be on display at Cheney Mansion (220 N. Euclid Avenue, Oak Park, IL). This free event is open from 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. This marks the sixth year that 15 school districts in the West Suburban Consortium for Academic Excellence (WSCAE) are hosting the expo to showcase K-8 student artwork.

Student artists will be present to discuss their pieces during the display period. A number of professional artists from the Oak Park Art League and surrounding communities will be on hand to view the artwork and provide feedback. All guests will have the opportunity to submit “fan mail” to the student artists, as well, highlighting what they like most about the pieces.

Represented districts include: Butler District 53, Community Consolidated School District 181, Franklin Park District 84, Gower District 62, LaGrange Highlands District 106, Hillside District 93, Komarek District 94, LaGrange District 105, LaGrange District 102, Oak Park District 97, Pleasantdale District 107, Riverside District 96, River Forest District 90, Union Ridge District 86, and Western Springs District 101.
