For those who may be in doubt that children are the future, or could use a surge of inspiration, welcome back Detroit Public Schools Community District Student Exhibition, which is returning for its 82nd year. Despite Secretary of Education Cruella DeVos’ villainous attempt to cut educational budgets and thereby threaten Detroit’s public school programs, artistic students persevere with the support of the exemplary teachers working tirelessly to encourage self-expression. Explorations of imagination and visions of the future created by students grades K-12, the exhibit will feature hundreds of works in a wide range of mediums, including paintings, drawings, prints, photography, ceramics, video, jewelry, and more. The exhibition will be on display through June 2.

The exhibit opens on Saturday, April 27, at the Detroit Institute of Arts; 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org. Event is free with museum admission.
