The Cape Canaveral Student Art Show has been a springtime cultural staple for students throughout Brevard County for more than two decades.
With the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the City of Cape Canaveral remains committed to promoting the exceptional talents of our young artists safely and conveniently. After an abundance of positive feedback from last year’s blind leap into the world of virtual exhibitions, they’ve decided to do it again!
According to a release, the Virtual Student Art Show, has expanded exponentially in the last few years, now featuring the artwork from as many as 16 schools — Including a mix of public, private, and charter institutions including, those enrolled in home school programs.
On May 1, 2021, the public can experience and share the artwork of the Cape Canaveral Virtual Student Art Show in three online 3-D galleries, via links on the City’s website.
These galleries will remain open until June 15, 2021, allowing students to share their art with friends and family around the world.
This year, the City incorporated an optional theme into the show, encouraging students to create works that illustrate the spirit of Resiliency; the result was overwhelming!
The different works and approaches serve to emphasize the diversity of the word yet reinforced the global nature of the myriad of challenges experienced by individuals and communities everywhere.
