Fourteen District 99 students and one faculty member received awards at the Chicagoland 4x5 High School Art Exhibition on November 8, 2017. Each piece in the Exhibition is contained within a 4x5 inch framework. Dubbed the "largest small show in the nation," and dedicated to the memory of Fremd High School art teacher Lew Hubbard, the Exhibition showcases student and faculty artwork and forges connections and provides opportunities for student artists through a myriad of corporate and collegiate sponsors.
Over 40 schools submitted over 900 pieces of artwork in nine media categories for the competitive show; 14 District 99 students and one faculty member received awards. A complete gallery of all winning artwork may be accessed HERE.
“The Chicagoland 4x5 Show is a national exhibition treasure for high school students.” said DGS Fine Arts Department Chair Glenn Williams.
"We are proud of not only the award winners, but of every participating artist," Brayer Teague, Fine Arts Chair at DGN added. "We thank our colleagues in Oswego for continuing the legacy of the 4x5 show for our student artists.”
