Legacy of Dick Sperisen

For more than 20 years, coordinator emeritus for art education and school design Dick Sperisen brought student art to the hallways of the San Mateo County Office of Education through the county's High School Artists Hall of Fame. This art exhibit displayed 192 works of art created by local high school students celebrating the California landscape.

As new artwork is received, each art piece currently displayed at the County Office of Education will be captured digitally and returned to the original schools attended by each artist.
