Each student’s original work of art will be featured on a project web site, and be available for viewing and voting by the public. The Top 25 pieces as chosen by voters will be featured in a gallery show, The Sidewalk Art Show. The show’s location will be determined by student vote later in the quarter. To connect the physical art show with the airwaves, the artist selected “Best In Show” will be a featured guest on the upcoming June episode of Sidewalk Radio. The episode will be devoted to the project, showcasing artists, educators, and the program’s impact on students and their art.
