Great Falls Public Schools Annual Student Art Exhibit Now On Display
The Great Falls Public Schools Annual Student Art Show is now on view for the community until May 19, 2022.
Visiting hours at the Square are Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Sunday/Monday closed.
The exhibit is a K-12 student art exhibit for GFPS. In 1977, educators, artists, and community activists were able to renovate and reopen the former high school as the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art.
Hannah Davis of the Paris Gibson Education Center has been announced as the 2022 recipient of the Zach Culliton Merit of Distinction in the Arts from the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art for her “Gonna Be Okay” logo design.
“Hannah Davis is one of those students every teacher dreams of. She is eager to learn, curious about everything, ready to try new things and not afraid to ask questions. Besides being an excellent student, she is also an incredible person. Life has thrown her a lot of curveballs lately, but she takes on each new challenge with incredible courage and always tries to brighten up other people’s day. She is truly a gem,” said Rikka Walters of PGEC.
The design and production of Davis’ shirt took place in PGEC’s graphic design class, Lynx Grafix. Walters co-teach with Vince Kornick. His experience in mass production was a major asset for the project.
The Great Falls Public School District works in partnership with the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art (The Square) to maintain this historic building and support the growth of arts education in Great Falls.
Student art exhibited in the museum’s Thayer and Wylder galleries was chosen by teachers in the school system.
