Public School Students’ Art at the Cape Ann Museum

Here are some photos of the elementary school childrens’ art on display at the Cape Ann Museum as a part of the “Gloucester Public School District Arts Festival” on Saturday, May 12.  The museum put a lot of work into hanging all these creations!

(To get these big shots, I had to take several photos and use panorama software, which led to a bit of distortion and broken lines here and there… I need to get one of those special panorama tripods that eliminate parallax!)

I am not sure if any of this is still up.  The brightness, simplicity, and freshness of it all created a real ambience of upbeat enthusiasm!

    splendid photos! for those of us who work at the museum, this display has been a revelation of how deep the urge to beauty runs in the human spirit. we should do this again and again, so our wonderful children can see how their work is as vital as the works of art that stay there year round. thanks for sharing your record of an exhibit i’ll never forget!
