Salem Public School’s See Me at Salem Arts Festival

Saturday, June 3, 2023 from 10 am-3 pm

Join PEM and our friends at Salem Arts Fest in downtown Salem for a special viewing of the See Me pop-up exhibition featuring artwork from Salem students in grades K-12. This celebration of student work will include drawings, paintings, photography and poetry. Take in the perspectives of Salem’s youth, then contribute your own work to the project through an art making activity!

See Me is an initiative through the Salem Public Schools Office of Public Relations that captures the district's core values of belonging, equity and opportunity through the expression of student voices. This public exhibition aims to share elements of how the young people of Salem see their history and how their cultures have shaped them. It explores how they see themselves walking through the world in the present and how they can influence the future.

Salem Public Schools is a diverse community that reflects countries, cultures and colors from around the world. See Me is a creative interpretation of students’ self-identity that brings its core values to life.

For 15 years, Salem Arts Fest has brought art, creativity and connection to our community by celebrating local creators. Arts and Culture are an integral part of day-to-day life in Salem. This annual festival has become a source of pride and revenue for hundreds of creative professionals and a major economic boost to the local community, with over 7,500 attendees annually.
