The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, presents two exhibits of work by Marion County Public School students, both on view through April 25.

“Young in Art” features work from Marion County Public School K-12 students. Hosted annually by the Appleton since the early 1990s, every public school in Marion County is invited to participate. This year, 42 schools submitted artwork with a total of 234 pieces of art. The work is on view in the museum’s education wing until April 25.

Also on display in the museum café, through April 25, is the “Superintendent’s Art Show.” Hosted at the Appleton since 2018, this youth art exhibit features one work of art selected from each school and highlights artistic excellence across the county.

After leaving the Appleton, the “Superintendent’s Art Show” will be on view throughout the summer in the Marion County Public School district offices and school board building.

The Appleton Museum of Art is located at 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala, east of downtown on SR 40 (exit 352 east off I-75 or exit 268 west off I-95). Parking is free. For information, call 352-291-4455 or visit
