Headline Goes Here

DETROIT - Paintings, prints, drawings, photography, ceramics and other pieces of art created by Detroit Public Schools students are going on display in an exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The 75th annual exhibition begins Saturday and runs through June 3. Viewing is free with regular museum admission.

The artists and their parents are invited to an opening reception Saturday afternoon.

Students in kindergarten through 12th grade submitted their work to a jury of local artists. District officials and a representative from the art institute determined which ones would make the show.

Some of the artwork is featured on posters, postcards and bookmarks marking the exhibit.

The Charter One Foundation, Ruth R. Cattell Education Endowment Fund and city of Detroit are supporting the exhibit.
