For the last two decades, the Cape Canaveral Student Art Show has been a spring time cultural staple for students throughout Brevard County. In the last few years, it has expanded exponentially and now features the artwork from as many as 16 schools — to include a mix of public, private and charter institutions as well as those enrolled in home school programs. This year, despite the necessary restrictions in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, on May 1st the show will go on!
Virtually, that is!
Just when cancellation seemed imminent, a solution was found on the other side of the globe, in Auckland, New Zealand, with Exhibbit, a company that specializes in creating virtual 3-D gallery experiences. Sympathetic to our dilemma, the company was eager to collaborate and help the City of Cape Canaveral avoid one less disappointing cancellation for area students — many of which have lost the opportunity to engage in athletic programs, social activities and above all, their well-earned commencement ceremonies.
The decision to go virtual also presented us with a unique opportunity. With its world-wide accessibility, this year’s show has enlisted a handful of guest judges who are professional artists, working in an assortment of fields around the world. This will not only serve as encouragement for our students considering careers in the arts, but reinforce the global nature of the challenges being faced right now by communities around the world.
The 21st annual Virtual Student Art Show is accessible in a series of four virtual 3-D galleries via the the links below and will remain available until May 30, 2020.
