The exhibit, in the Pequot Library’s Auditorium/Concert Hall, Reading Room, and in The Perkin Gallery, is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.

More than 800 two-dimensional and many 3D pieces of art will be on display, created by students at Fairfield’s two high schools, three middle schools and 11 elementary schools, exemplifying the progression of work from kindergarten through high school.

A special showing of Advanced Placement Studio Art Selections will be on exhibit in The Perkin Gallery from May 27 through June 9. The exhibition features work from AP students at Fairfield Ludlowe and Fairfield Warde high schools.

The Teacher/Student/Parent Reception is Wednesday, May 28, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wakeman Boys & Girls Club is providing refreshments in a tent outside, and there will be lawn games and activities for little ones on Pequot’s Great Lawn. Mark Edinberg, founding member of Prescription Jazz, and Steve Clarke, owner of Q-UP Studios and Music Productions, will perform on the stage inside. Police Explorers will direct traffic.

“Bringing literature, art, music, science and the humanities to our community has been part of Pequot Library’s mission for 125 years,” Pequot Library Director of Development Karen Linder said. “Now, in Fairfield’s 375th anniversary year, we are delighted to have been chosen by the Fairfield Public Schools to host their 40th Annual Townwide Art Show!”
