Featuring 50 billboard size images and quotes, each piece in the 2021 exhibit will illuminate the theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion” while providing connections to Social-Emotional Learning and Visual Thinking Strategies.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, free field trips will be offered January 20 through April 1, 2021.
Please Note: The ability to offer in-person field trips is contingent on CDC and individual school district policies on your selected date.
Should you need to make changes to or cancel your in-person or virtual field trip, please email or call us at 941-404-5710 as soon as possible.
For in-person field trip cancelations, please note that you must also cancel all scheduled buses directly with your transportation department. Any such cost will be the responsibility of the individual school making the reservation.
As a condition to receiving a free field trip, participating teachers must complete a short, online post-trip survey. Field trip invoices will not be paid until such time as the survey is completed.
Classes who visit the exhibit in-person or virtually are provided the opportunity to continue their experience with one of our community partners. In 2020, more than 3,000 students experienced a partner activity as part of their field trip.
