This March, The Art Institutes system of schools (“The Art Institutes”) will have more than 50 Art Institutes locations in the United States host What Those Who Teach Can Do, a national collaboration of gallery shows to pay tribute to talented arts educators across the country. In Tinley Park, The Illinois Institute of Art—Tinley Park, an additional location of The Illinois Institute of Art — Chicago, will feature local high school art and media educators’ artwork in a month-long exhibition to celebrate their creativity, and thank them for positively affecting the lives of so many students.
