All Around Art features artwork made by students from eleven regional schools, as well as students who are home schooled. The students participated in a field trip program that was offered in conjunction with University Galleries’ exhibition Juan Angel Chávez: Winded Rainbow . The three-part program consisted of a curator-led tour; a found object artmaking workshop taught by graduate students in Illinois State University's Art Education department; and this public exhibition of the resulting artworks.
A generous grant from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation—Mirza Arts and Culture Fund enabled University Galleries to offer field trip stipends, significantly increasing arts accessibility for public schools.
