Broken Arrow Public Schools to host district-wide art show at NSUBA – April 10-14

(Broken Arrow, Oklahoma) -- Broken Arrow Public Schools will host its seventh annual district-wide art show April 10-14 at Northeastern State University - Broken Arrow. Following the show, senior high art will remain on display for the remainder of April.

The public is invited to view pre-kindergarten through senior high school art exhibits between 8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

An opening night event is slated for 5-7 p.m. April 11 in the Visitors’ Center Gallery in the Administrative Services building.

Student art work will be on display in various campus buildings, which is a first for this annual show. All displays will be accessible via enclosed walkways which connect all campus buildings, and visitors are encouraged to visit each exhibit.

Dr. Roy Wood, dean of the Broken Arrow campus, said having the art exhibits located throughout campus will expose more NSU faculty, staff and students to the art. At the same time, BAPS families will have the opportunity to see more of the NSU campus while enjoying less overwhelming displays.

High school art will be in the Administrative Services building in the first floor Visitors’ Center Gallery and lobby. Middle school art will be in the Liberal Arts building in the second floor walkway and atrium. Elementary school art will be in the library in the first and second floor walkways and in the central areas. Pre-kindergarten art will be in the Science building in the second floor walkway.

“Broken Arrow has a long tradition of quality visual arts programs in our schools,” said Dr. Richard Dale, BAPS director of fine arts. “Our districtwide art show, in partnership with NSU-BA, is a great opportunity to recognize these great programs and the many talented fine arts students. We hope that all of Broken Arrow will join us to experience the dedication our students have to their craft.”
