2014 Art’scool “Inspired” Online Exhibition

Thursday, May 8–Sunday, June 15, 2014

Jenny Brown’s high school students at Southwestern High School created a sculptural piece that made connections among social studies, science, mathematics, and art. They were inspired by the works of Ken Price, including his sculpture Whitey, 2003, in the Albright-Knox’s Collection.

Online Exhibition

For the third year in a row, the “Inspired” contest has been made possible as part of the Albright-Knox’s Art’scool program, which is presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York. Teachers for grades K–12 who visited the museum with their students between May 2013 and April 27, 2014, were eligible to enter the artwork their students created from lesson plans they developed as a result of their “inspired” visit to the Albright-Knox. Each lesson plan relates to works the students viewed during their visit and makes connections across curricular disciplines. 

Western New York teachers submitted thirty-nine entries this year. This online exhibition, which highlights the talents of both teachers and students, consists of a selection of images of artworks from each entry. We encourage you to take a look and be inspired!

An exhibition of selected entries will be on view at the Albright-Knox from Friday, May 16, through Sunday, June 15, 2014. An exhibition opening reception and awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 15, from 4 to 7 pm.

The Art’scool “Inspired” contest and exhibition are presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York.
