What people are saying about the CPS Virtual Gallery:


“Love it! It felt like being there in person. Thank you for helping to share some of the amazing artwork our students are producing.”


“I am a CPS Art Teacher and want to say THANK YOU so much for making the art show live. It was great to share some good news with the artists and their families and have the event continue when everything else is canceled. I love how the display simulates the gallery experience with wide views and close ups. Well done!”


“This is a beautiful presentation. I am in awe of the talent of the students and kudos to the teachers in their interesting proposals for inspiration and medium.”


“Loved it!”


“Great Job creating this.”


“Honestly, I was pretty blown away. This collection changed my assumptions of 'student art' (and I've been to lots of student art shows). All props to the students and their teachers!”


“Really love that you are finding ways to showcase your exhibitions online - especially as a way to engage students who are out of school right now. Thank you!”


“This is a fantastic resource, especially during the Covid crisis. It’s a great way to provide access to wonderful artwork. Thank you!”
