Tapestry Arts

Gwinnett’s best young artists will be in the spotlight from February 25 through March 23, during Gwinnett County Public Schools’ (GCPS) Tapestry event. GCPS’ annual celebration of the arts takes place at the school district’s headquarters, which is located at 437 Old Peachtree Rd. NW in Suwanee. Visitors to the school district’s J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center (ISC) can roam the student art exhibit, seeing firsthand how the lessons from Gwinnett’s award-winning fine arts teachers come to life through student artwork. All guests to the ISC must follow masking guidance in place at the time of their visit and maintain distance from other visitors whenever possible. (Based on guidance for the week, masks will be either required or recommended. Weekly mask guidance is shared with families and staff on Monday afternoons.)

Over the course of three-and-a-half weeks, the ISC’s lobby area will be transformed into an art museum filled with paintings, drawings, three-dimensional art, mixed media, pottery, jewelry, and two-dimensional art— all created by Gwinnett students. The student artwork will rotate by cluster during the exhibit. Tapestry is open to the public during business hours during the week and during designated weekend hours. Building hours are:

  • Monday – Friday: 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • Saturday: 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.
  • NO artwork will be displayed the weekend of March 5 – 6, 2022.

The exhibit dates are:

February 25 – March 3: Participating schools in the Brookwood, Collins Hill, Norcross, North Gwinnett, Shiloh, and South Gwinnett clusters, as well as Paul Duke STEM High School, Oakland Meadow, and Gwinnett Online Campus
