MIAD’s relationships with the Illinois High School Art Exhibition has been phenomenal. IHSAE facilitates meaningful connections for us — through exhibitions of student work, on-campus trips, mature discourse about creative education, and more. The program is an anchor for our recruitment and relationship-building throughout Illinois.

Connect with students

As a sponsor, the IHSAE provides you digital and in-person access to students, parents and teachers.  Connect with participating students and teachers via email, social media, and your IHSAE web presence, then make your presence felt at our Visual Art Fest which consists of two major exhibitions of student artwork, a college fair, and a vendor and career expo.

Key Details:

  • The College Fair gives art schools, colleges or universities the opportunity to connect with students, teachers, and parents. Use our student and teacher contact lists to plan school visits and setup face-to-face conversations.

  • The General Exhibition will showcase over 500 artworks from more than 110 high schools in Illinois 

  • The Senior Scholarship Exhibition will feature over 300 students’ artworks, honoring those students whose portfolios have earned them tuition scholarship offers from art schools, colleges, and universities.

All events happen in Chicago on Sunday, March 8th, 2020.
