On Tuesday, May 12, St. Francis High School in Wheaton will host its annual art show.

The art exhibit will remain true to tradition by showcasing works of art by over 150 St. Francis High School students.


The only difference between this year's show and those of years past is that audiences will be able to view the entire show, virtually.

The show will feature over 200 pieces from all levels of art: AP, Art 4, Art 3, Art 2, Visual Art, Digital Art and Communications Design.

"We display work from all levels and enjoy having the opportunity to showcase all the hard work our students put into their creations throughout the year," says Performing & Visual Arts Teacher Kate Doane.

"The show gives viewers the ability to see how our artists' progress throughout our program, following the journey from Art One to AP," says Doane "With the restrictions in place as a result of COVID-19, we aren't able to showcase our students' work as we usually do with our annual art show. This year's Virtual Show will be different, but Performing & Visual Arts Teacher Tia Holinger and I look forward to celebrating all our student's accomplishments, and helping them share their gifts with the wider community!"

Typically the show is commonly attended by the community and is judged by local artists -- this year only AP will be judged.
