Highpoint’s annual LOOK/SEE Exhibit features work by hundreds of students that visited our classroom studio in the past year to learn hands-on printmaking skills as part of our School Partnership Program. Participating School include: Adelante College Prep, Belle Plaine Junior and Senior High School, Bethlehem Chid Care Center, The Blake School, FAIR School Downtown, Lyndale Community School, Minneapolis Kids at Lyndale, Minnesota Transitions High School, Stonebridge Community School, YouthCARE MN, and Washburn High School.
In tandem with the LOOK/SEE Exhibition, work produced by eight high school students as part of the ACCESS/PRINT Project will be on display in the adjoining gallery. During this free mentorship program, these young talents each spent over 70 hours at Highpoint working with artist mentors to develop a series of prints included in this exhibition. Access/Print artists: Makayla Fearing-Fairbanks, Hayoung Lim, Anthony Lockhart, Conor McLun, Marissa Nicol, Eddie Oretgon, Lillian Smith, and Emma Westbrook.
