The Museum and Lehigh Valley School Districts: A Community Partnership

How does a Museum become more than a house for beautiful works of art? How does a school go beyond the confines of a classroom to engage its students?  

Many opportunities exist, but none more powerful than a partnership in learning. A partnership where success is measured not just in numbers, but also in lives changed and communities elevated. That is the very core of the relationship between the Allentown Art Museum and the Lehigh Valley School Districts.
