Southeast Minnesota high school students show off their work at Rochester Art Center
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Some southeast Minnesota high school art students get to share off their art at the Rochester Art Center. The display went up Saturday.
More than 100 students from 12 different school were chosen by their art teachers to display their art at the tenth annual Southeast Minnesota Art Show.
Most of the students are from rural schools outside of Rochester who don’t typically get the opportunity to showcase their art to a large audience.
After not being able to host the event in-person for the past two years, students were excited to show off their work at a physical display this year.
“It’s never something I thought would happen. It’s kind of surreal,” Goodhue high school senior Grace Schulte said.
“I think it’s just really cool that this museum offers the opportunity to do something like this. Especially with more schools offering art programs as of late,” Goodhue high school senior Taylor Berg said.
“It is amazing. I love all the art pieces here. They inspire me to create even more art pieces,” Goodhue high school senior Alee Vargas said.
You can check out the display any time during the Rochester Art Center’s open hours. The display will stay up until March 27.
