2016 School-wide Student Art Show

The hallway at Zilker has been transformed into a museum again...and oh what an amazing museum it is!!  Students have worked so hard to create their works of art, and the show is making our school so much brighter and more colorful.  This is a quick synopsis of the art show; if you can, you should see it in person in all of its glory!
