“Art is a nation’s most precious heritage. For it is in our works of art that we reveal to ourselves and to others the inner vision which guides us as a nation. And where there is no vision, the people perish.” 
–Lyndon B. Johnson, on signing into existence the National Endowment on the Arts, 1965
 

Johnson’s powerful words reinforce the importance of art as an engine of understanding, change, and hope. Students who are denied access to the arts lose connections to cultural heritage, both their own, and that of others from whom they may learn. Art enables students to find their own voices, and develop the skills of creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking essential to success in the 21st century. For 86 years the Haggin Museum has been proud to celebrate arts in education by showcasing the creative efforts of students and their teachers in San Joaquin County.

This year we hold a  welcome reception for students, their families and teachers on two days, February 4th and 5th from 1:30-3:00 p.m. This event is FREE to everyone and sponsored by the Junior Women’s Group of The Haggin Museum who will provide punch and cookies for guests.
