There’s something special about Arthur Dixon Elementary School on Chicago’s South Side. Over two-hundred works of art fill the building and spill outside into the schoolyard. Sculptures, oil paintings, watercolors, mosaics, and textiles present an education experience filled with color, texture, and creativity.

In a new film we see how art is integrated into all aspects of the school curriculum. Pamela Sherrod Anderson's latest film, “The Curators of Dixon School,” is the result of a two-year study documenting the students, teachers, educators, and art that occupy the building.

Join us July, 20th at 10 am for a screening and Q&A "The Curators of Dixon School" at the Southwest Arts Center 915 New Hope Road SW, Atlanta 30331
