Senate Hall Exhibit

About the Exhibit:

Established in 2014, a joint effort between the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education, the Missouri Art Education Association, and sponsored by Senator David Pearce, the Senate Hall Art Exhibit showcases fine arts programs in all 34 Senate Districts. The exhibit is located on the grounds of the Capitol in the hallway that leads from Senate parking to the Capitol ground floor entrance.

From Top left: Katlynn Ritchie, Mountain Grove, HS; Karlee Terrell, Wellington-Napoleon; Quinn Thomas, Eureka High School;

Student work is submitted by the teacher, compiled and submitted to each senator for the final selection process.

NOT just for visual artists! This contest also welcomes submissions across ALL arts disciplines. You do not have to be a member of MAEA or any other statewide arts education organization to submit examples of student artwork.

How it Works:

K-12 teachers from any arts discipline take high-quality photos of a work or performance. Images are submitted to us, organized by district and sent to each of our 34 State Senators. They view work from their district and select one image to represent them. The chosen images are printed on 12"x16" paper and displayed in frames throughout the year at the Missouri Capitol to advocate legislator support for the arts.

Both the selected student artist and their teacher are honored at the MAEA Legislative Day and MAAEs Fine Arts Education Day.

For more information and to see the most recent student artwork selected for this honor, visit the Missouri Art Education Association (MAEA) web pages dedicated to this initiative.
