5x5 Art Salon
The annual 5x5 Art Salon began in 2013 as an art and writing exhibition celebrating the creativity of all members of the Park Tudor community: students, faculty and staff, parents, and alumni. The size limitation of 5x5 inches allows us to display hundreds of works on the bulletin boards of the Upper School hallways. Every year an optional theme is provided for inspiration. Previous years’ themes have included “By the Numbers,” “A to Z,” and “Cut It Out.” This year’s theme is “FOUND-ational.”
