Throughout the year, student work is selected for consideration for the Art Exhibits that the Proviso West HS Art Department enters. The students are given a certificate of achievement and a note is written on their Idea Sheet asking if they wish to have their work entered in the art shows.
As a department, due to the recent downsizing, the art shows we still participate in are:
Elmhurst High School Art Exhibit in January.
-This is a judged show where artists are awarded ribbons and Seniors have the chance to win a partial scholarship to the Art College at Elmhurst College. All participants will be awarded a certificate of participation.
2012 Artworks Awarded Ribbons
Hinsdale Arts Center High School Art Exhibit in February to March.
-This is a judged show and the top pieces are selected to be put on display in a local business to highlight their accomplishments.
North Riverside Classic Cinemas display in March.
-This show will highlight the best of Proviso West High School and is selected by the art department. The participants of this show will be displayed in the lobby of the Classic Cinemas in the North Riverside Mall. Those chosen for display will receive a coupon worth one free movie admission to the North Riverside Classic Cinemas.
We previously hosted our own Visual Arts Festival for the past 15 years but due to the severe cuts in the art department this show will no longer be feasible. We hope to do our best at the outside exhibits and to highlight our own students the best we can here in the E-Wing hallway all year round.
