Young talent exhibited at Swope Art Museum through May 15

TERRE HAUTE — The 43rd Annual Student Art Exhibition runs through May 15 at the Swope Art Museum. The public reception will be 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, with the high school awards presentation at 2 p.m.

It was May 1967 when the first Student Art Exhibition opened at the Swope. Howard E. Wooden, executive director of the Swope from 1966-75, felt that the perspectives of young talent revealed the health and cultural awareness of a community, as well as the success created when teachers encourage self-expression along with technical disciplines.

Wooden ’s original vision is validated by today ’s student submissions. This year ’s student exhibition includes about 340 students from 33 elementary, middle and high schools. The high school section was judged by Bernard Hagedorn, professor of art at Vincennes University. Hagedorn selected 71 works of art from about 240 submissions and selected 30 for awards.

Hagedorn commented, “Over the last 20 years, I have been privileged to jury many high school shows across southern and central Indiana. This exhibition of high school work is one of the finest I have had the opportunity to witness.”

Since its inception, the exhibition has grown to include other schools, including some from Illinois. As part of the programming all of the fifth-graders in Vigo County arrive for an intensive schedule of tours.
