No Boundaries with PUSD

Apr 28, 2013

“Tunes” by Mariah Dimalalvan, Grade 9, Blair IB High School

A vacant storefront and over 400 pieces of art; it’s the PUSD all-district art exhibit known as No Boundaries.

Now in its eighth year, this exhibit showcases the work of students K-12 from every school in the Pasadena Unified School District.

The opening reception is Friday, May 3rd and the public is welcome to peruse the artwork, listen to a live band and a choral performance, as well as watch a dance performance.

Particularly outstanding student artists will be awarded art study scholarships for programs at The Armory Center for the Arts and the Art Center College of Design. The Pasadena Arts Commission in also involved, selecting 60 works to be hung on the Council Chambers “art wall,” each one being professionally framed.

This exhibit exists because of the hard work of volunteers from the District Arts Team and the Community Arts Team of which Marshall Ayers is the District Arts Education Coordinator.

This is a standing committee of the District that consists of teachers, parents, and community members who are dedicated to implementing our District-wide arts plan. Additionally, Denise K. Seider has been our installation coordinator for the past five years. Denise weaves all the artwork together into a beautiful whole—we don’t show the work by grade or school, we seek thematic and esthetic connections and install the work as professionally as possible, emphasizing quality from the entire District. We also include student artist statements that speak to their creative process.
