ARTS IN EDUCATION SHOWCASE - MAY 3rd & 4th, 2017


Principals, Teachers, Cultural Arts leaders, PTA members, mark your calendars for May 3rd and 4th 2017, from 9:15 am to 1:30 pm, and join us for our annual Arts in Education Showcase. Two amazing days to preview over 30 exceptional programs in dance, music, visual arts, theatre, poetry and storytelling. These programs are all available for school presentations for the 2017-2018 school year.

Each performer or group will "showcase" highlights from their full length programs allowing you to preview over 15 performances per day. Our artists and performers come from far and wide for this event (California, Toronto, Rome, Vermont) to afford schools and their representatives the opportunity to see first-hand what these programs are all about.

This event is also a great opportunity to meet and network with representatives from other schools and share ideas about cultural arts.

Light refreshments will be provided but you are also welcome to pack a lunch and use the benches outside the theatre if you’d care to take a longer lunch break. There is free parking on the campus for this event and there will be signs for parking as well as assistance from campus security if you need directions.

YOUR MEMBERSHIP MATTERS. Morris Arts serves as a regional resource (connecting schools in 13 counties to exceptional arts programs) and we do not charge any commissions or fees on assemblies or workshops. Instead – we ask schools and artists to support our work through membership.

Most schools renew their annual $70. school membership in the spring, that way, in addition to attending the Showcase, members schools will receive a copy of our annual Arts in Education Program Guide and invitations to attend our Cultural Arts Exchange and Artist Residency Roundtable.

Member schools may register up to 5 guests from their school per Showcase day. The school membership form can be printed out from our website and mailed to Morris Arts or brought to the Showcase.

If your school is unable to pay a membership fee please contact Barbara Reuther for more information breuther@morrisarts.org or call 973-285-5115 ext 16.

If you are a Cultural Arts Planner for a community, library, YMCA or other organization and would like to attend the Showcase – please contact Barbara Reuther to register.
