SIU Med School to Display Enos School Artwork

Artwork by Enos Elementary School students will be exhibited Monday, March 7, through Thursday, March 24, in the main lobby (second floor) of Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, 801 N. Rutledge, Springfield.

The exhibit consists of nearly 60 pieces of art created by Enos students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  It will be open to the public during the School’s regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.  A reception will be held for the young artists and their families at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 24.

This is the fifteenth year for the exhibit.  Enos has been SIU’s “adopted school” in Springfield School District 186’s business partner program since 1985.  The art exhibit is among a number of ongoing activities presented by SIU and its employees for Enos students throughout the school year.  These activities range from mentoring to donating school supplies and reading materials.
