Returning Student Artwork

Exhibited artwork not marked for FOA will be re-packaged, labeled, and returned to the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) after the exhibition closes. Artwork will be sent back to public schools via district mail. Private schools must make arrangements to pickup artwork from OCDE. Please call 714-966-4438 with questions regarding art pickup after May 22, 2019.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS:

Artwork that was not selected for display will be placed in the mail room at the Orange County Department of Education, 200 Kalmus Drive in Costa Mesa, no later than 5:00 pm on Thursday, April 25, 2019.  Artwork selected for the exhibition will be sent back to schools no later than May 22, 2019. You will need to make arrangements with your district mail room or district coordinator for artwork to be returned to individual school sites.  Artwork often sits in district mail rooms or in individual school offices waiting for pick up. If your students' work does not return to you in a timely fashion, please check these areas.

PRIVATE SCHOOLS:

It is your responsibility to pick up artwork. Artwork that was not selected for the exhibition will be available for pick up at the Orange County Department of Education, Building D, no later than 4:00 pm starting Thursday, May 2, 2019. Artwork must be picked up by Thursday, May 16, 2019. Artwork that is part of the exhibition but not also selected for FOA will be available for pick up no later than 5pm starting Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Please contact Annabel Arreola at aarreola@ocde.us or (714) 966-4438 to arrange a time to pick up artwork between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm after this date.

All possible precautions are taken to guarantee that student artwork is safely returned to the schools after the exhibit.  Unfortunately, artwork with incomplete labels or labels that are not legible might be sent to the wrong school district or not returned. Check all work when it is returned to your site.  If you receive artwork that does not belong to you, please return it immediately to OCDE, to the attention of Annabel Arreola.
