December 5, 1948, Opening Day
The first Jr. Art Exhibit featured at the Whittier Art Gallery, attracted thousands of visitors. Classrooms of students toured the exhibit during December of 1948. Each teacher signed the gallery’s guest book, indicating the number of students visiting from their class.
Note: The student art exhibit tradition was reinstated in 2007. The Whittier Art Association Board of Directors looks forward to providing grants to fund annual student art exhibits for both the Whittier City and East Whittier City School Districts.
