Annual Pawtucket City Wide High School Exhibit

PAC sponsored the first student art show in 2011 featuring the work of students form Pawtucket’s Jackie M. Walsh School. Students from the school’s jazz band performed during the opening reception.

In the fall of 2011, PAC decided to expand the show to all the high schools in Pawtucket. In the spring of 2012 PAC sponsored a very successful Pawtucket wide high school art exhibit at the Blackstone Valley Visitor’s Center. Students from Tolman, Shea, JM Walsh, St Ray’s, Bishop Keough and Blackstone Academy all exhibited work. PAC is planning its 3rd Annual Pawtucket Wide High School Art Show this spring. Students have been invited to submit poster designs for the show this year and PAC is planning to offer cash prizes in various categories. There will also be a panel discussion for the students on opening night.
