Elk Grove, CA, May 11, 2021-Students from Valley High and Franklin High in the Elk Grove Unified School District put their talents on display at the Crocker Art Museum. Each year the museum challenges high school students to submit art pieces to be chosen for display in a special exhibit. 

This year, seven pieces were submitted from the Digital Art class at both Valley High and Franklin High, and all fourteen art pieces were selected to be displayed in the art show as well as one honorable mention. This is a great accomplishment for the students whose extra work and effort to create their masterpieces independently from home has been recognized by top art experts. Students from over 40 schools submitted artwork, and only 72 pieces were accepted, with Viking art from Valley and Wildcat art from Franklin making up 20% of selected artwork!

The selected pieces shown below were on display through May 9th at the Crocker Art Museum, which is the only museum in the Sacramento region that is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. This recognition is given to very few museums, with less than 1,100 of the nation’s 33,000 museums being accredited.

The Crocker Art Museum displays world-renowned art and exhibits while also hosting events, programs and classes. Elk Grove Unified is thrilled that its skilled students’ artwork was displayed beside world-renowned work and exhibits.
