IN-SCHOOL PROGRAMS – CONVERGENCE 2022 Schedule
An Exhibition of artwork from 40 schools in 4 locations
Join us to meet the students, teaching artists, classroom teachers, and families of CAPE 2022!
Exhibitions, Receptions and Hours
Convergence is an annual exhibition of student arts-integrated projects created in CAPE’s Artist/Researcher Partners Program. The exhibition is a collection in four locations of artworks by K-12 students from 40 classrooms across Chicago Public Schools. Teachers and teaching artists begin the year formulating inquiry questions that form the investigative arc for their curriculum—these questions set in motion student engagement through art-making to explore and expand academic content learning. By creating original artworks, students make connections between academics and the environment outside the classroom.
