Superintendent's Gallery features student art

Superintendent Carol R. Johnson has launched the Superintendent’s Gallery, a rotating series of solo exhibitions designed to showcase the work of emerging high school student artists. Each artist’s work will be displayed in Dr. Johnson’s office at Boston Public Schools headquarters (26 Court Street) before traveling to the Boston Teachers Union Hall (Dorchester) and to the BPS Teaching & Learning department offices for six-week exhibitions. Steven Wong of the South End (pictured here), a junior at the Josiah Quincy Upper School in Chinatown, is the first student selected to exhibit his work. Six of Steven’s acrylic impressionist paintings are currently on display outside of Dr. Johnson’s office.

i'm a teacher in cambridge, and in this era of "no child left behind" and decisions that result in the alienation of students largely because of fine arts programs being cut, i find it refreshing and encouraging to see a district not only keeping but embracing these vital aspects of education.

not to mention, this blog is so much more descriptive and feels less like "bps" propaganda, which is what most school websites feel like these days!

so, props to you, bps! :)
