Now in its thirteenth year, LabArts has become one of the Schools’ most significant community events. Led by the fine arts faculty and in partnership with a dedicated group of parents, LabArts has grown into what is now several weeks of events and activities centered around gallery-style installations of more than 1,500 pieces of student artwork.

The primary location for all works of art will be the John and Victoria Rogers Lobby in Gordon Parks Arts Hall. See the schedule below for specific event information.
