Artwork by students of Bibb County Schools will be displayed at the seventh annual Bibb County Schools Student Art Show, which happens to be during March’s “First Friday” tradition in Macon.

“This annual exhibit was started to celebrate Youth Art Month by recognizing the young artists in our community and giving them the opportunity to show their work in a true art gallery,” said Melissa Macker, a representative for the event.

Several students from the Bibb County Public School District created art for the installation; selections were made from all grade levels and school sizes. Students in second grade at Porter Elementary School will be featured right alongside students from Central High School.

The art that will be on display at the exhibition was selected by the teachers of Bibb County Schools. According to Macker, they judged based on hard work, creativity and the enthusiasm of the students. Many different young artists will be on display at the art gallery, but not everyone in the county could be selected.

The exhibit was able to happen due to a partnership between the Department of Fine Arts of the Bibb County School District and The 567 Center for Renewal, where the exhibit’s opening will be held.

The 567 Center for Renewal is located at 456 First St. in Macon, and the gallery will open to the public on Friday, March 1. There will be light refreshments at the opening, as well as a live music ensemble performed by students from Bibb County schools.

Admission into the gallery is free of charge, and it will be on display for the entire month of March.
