EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is pleased to share the work of East Lansing High School (ELHS) students in the rotating art display on the north side of the Division Street Garage along Albert Avenue.
The special exhibit began earlier this month and will run through the summer. It was installed in time for the 60th annual East Lansing Art Festival that was held May 20-21.
The selected artists are all Advanced Placement (AP) students in 2D and 3D art classes at ELHS. Every student has at least one piece of art represented in the exhibit. The display consists of four double-sided display panels, each measuring four feet by six feet.
The student artists featured in the exhibit are: Gabe Benavides, Calvin Bosanic, Rosemary Buhl, Elijah Burch, Casey Cortright, Greer Crosson, Mason Dexter, Miles Draper, Piper Dufner, Ella Gentilozzi, Ev Holbrook, Emmah Howard, Stella Kolkema, Grace Liggett, Evan Newcombe, Nala Noel, Ben Novello, Gwen Petrie, Aiyana Rosinkski, Ayla Schnepp, Hannah Smith and Barbara Stout.
“I love displaying our students’ work, but I especially love showing off our AP students. Throughout the school year they learn new techniques and advance their craft to make college level pieces. To have a chance to display work for the community is a nice end to the school year. I’m so proud of all of them!” East Lansing art teacher Elise Millard said.
As part of its ongoing creative placemaking initiatives in downtown East Lansing, the DDA installed the four multi-purpose artwork display panels in 2021. Several rotating art exhibitions have been featured in the space since then, including reproductions from the MSU Broad Art Museum’s permanent collection and artwork by local artists from the Greater Lansing area.
