Parkland College > Fine & Applied Arts > Parkland Art Gallery > Special Events
Every year Parkland Art Gallery organizes a handful of special events that strive to connect the community to the art world. Every fall the Gallery coordinates the High School Art Seminar, an all-day event that invites area high school art teachers to bring their students to Parkland College to try out new materials and techniques. Parkland Art Gallery and Community Education collaborate each spring and fall on Art Expeditions to museums and galleries in the Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis areas. The Gallery frequently provides events for elementary and junior high school students, giving tours of the gallery and themed art projects. As an educational gallery, Parkland provides several outlets for students and community alike to learn from and be immersed in contemporary art.
