Each school's art teacher chooses work based on artistic style, subject, student growth or use of materials, District 44 visual arts educator Alicia York said.

"The works represent the diversity of the community and the achievements our talented, emerging artists who participate in art class or those who enroll in various art clubs at Glenn Westlake (Middle School)," York said.

"Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills. All of these skills are vital to the success of our future leaders."

The public may view the artwork at the village hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave., during business hours: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays.
