MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit to Return for 2021

Student art returns to MSUFCU.

While the novel coronavirus has stopped high schools from operating normally, it hasn’t stopped high school art students from creating.

Now more than ever, creating art is a catalyst for healing from the stress, rigors of at home learning and the isolation from fellow students as a result of COVID-19.

Michigan State University Federal Credit Union has been instrumental in supporting student art for several years with the annual MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit. Each year, dozens of local schools participate. Last year alone, over 160 pieces were submitted and voted on by a team of judges. There were also awards based on social media votes, school spirit, and votes cast online and at MSUFCU headquarters where the artwork is displayed.

The show will go on for 2021 but with a few COVID-related twists. The 2021 show will not offer in-person VIP nights or awards nights; however, the awards will be celebrated on a television broadcast in the spring, allowing an even greater opportunity for the artwork to be seen.

Registration is going on now for Greater Lansing area high schools. Schools wishing to participate should email Amanda Fischer at

The event, sponsored in part by 517 Magazine, will showcase an exhibit from Jan. 27 to Feb. 24 at MSUFCU headquarters in East Lansing. Voting will run as usual via social media, online and in person when possible for the various honors. A panel of judges will also view the art for juried awards.

The television broadcast will be produced by M3 Group and run on WILX-TV 10 at a date to be determined shortly following the exhibit run.
