Clerks 4 Arts Public Art Exhibition in Palm Beach County

Wednesday, May 9, 2018   (0 Comments)

The Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller’s Clerks 4 Arts (Art Reflected Through Students) exhibit opened on April 19, 2018, with more than 150 pieces of original artwork by Conniston Middle School students. Now in its third year, Clerks 4 Arts encourages creativity and civic engagement by bringing a new student art exhibit to the Clerk’s offices in the Governmental Center each spring.

 

“My office is committed to making positive contributions in the community,” said Sharon R. Bock, Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller. “By providing public display space for these student artists they are able to cultivate their creativity while showcasing their work.”

 

“The Clerk 4 Arts program provides students an opportunity to explore their personalities within an artistic paradigm,” said Shannon R. Chessman, Chief Operating Officer of Finance for the Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller. “They also gain experience in important business matters related to the large-scale public display of art including curation, logistics, partnerships, funding and marketing.”

 

Last year’s art was recently sold at an online auction and at events raising a total of $2,300 for the school to sustain the program for next year’s art exhibit.

 

The Clerks 4 Arts exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Clerks & Comptroller’s office in the Palm Beach County Governmental Center, 301 N. Olive Avenue, second floor, West Palm Beach.
