Student Artwork: On Tour. On Display. Here to Stay.

Each spring, Stevenson High School Visual Arts Faculty selects exceptional student artwork to join Stevenson's Permanent Art Collection. The practice of purchasing student artwork began in the 1980’s and the collection now comprises more than 450 pieces displayed throughout campus.

In 2014, Stevenson began the Permanent Art Tour, starting with Lincolnshire Village Hall and expanding to include locations throughout the district. Today, each annual collection enters a three year cycle beginning with exhibitions in the community, moving to a showcase at Stevenson, and concluding with a permanent installation on campus.
