Virtual exhibition features sixth grade artwork

Even with a pandemic, the show must go on!

In this case, the show is the Sixth Grade Art Show. An in-person show had been scheduled for this month at the Hutchinson Art Center. At this time, however, Hutchinson USD 308 as well as the Hutchinson Art Center buildings are closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The student work now will be shown as a virtual exhibition, available on https://www.hutchinsonartcenter.net/exhibits/sixthgradeartshow.

 The online Exhibition ends on April 19.
