Students and their CSMA art teachers at schools in Mountain View , Los Altos and other local communities have been hard at work creating art just in time for national “March for Arts Education” month, a celebration of the importance of providing children with arts education. The result is a teacher/student collaborative exhibition called The City Show.

The show, which presents a colorful mix of paintings, drawings, sculptures, collages and more, is open to the public through March 21, 2010 at City Hall, Rotunda, 500 Castro St , Mountain View . City Hall is open Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm. The free public exhibit is sponsored by the City of Mountain View Visual Arts Committee and the Community School of Music and Arts ( CSMA ).

On display will be more than 300 pieces of art by students (GR 1-8) and their CSMA art teacher from 17 local schools, including every public Mountain View Whisman District elementary school (Bubb, Castro, Huff, Landels, Monta Loma, Stevenson, Theuerkauf) and Yew-Chung School in Mountain View, as well as Springer School (Los Altos School District), Montclaire School (Cupertino School District), Costano School (Ravenswood School District), St. Nicholas (Los Altos Hills), The Academy (San Jose), Baywood (San Mateo), Murdock-Portal (San Jose), Resurrection (Sunnyvale) and St. Josephs (Cupertino).
