Celebrate Youth Art Month in March: Art Shapes the World!
Local students Brady Smith and Kamara Langenbrunner of Churchill Elementary School were selected to have their work on display in the State Capitol in celebration of Youth Art Month 2010.
The Capitol Art Show is a long standing tradition of the Art Educators of Minnesota in collaboration with the Council for Art Education and the National Art Educators Association to recognize and promote the achievements of students through their outstanding work in visual arts in Minnesota. Each year, art educators from around the state select their most exemplary works of art to be on display in the Capitol during the month of March. It is a great honor for Smith and Langenbrunner to have their work in the Capitol Art Show.
Copies of their work and artist statements are currently on display also at Churchill Elementary in the Stairwell Gallery near the gymnasium. The work of their fifth-grade classmates is also currently on display in the hallways. Ask for a visitor’s pass at the office to view the art and photography.
The 2010 Capitol Art Show is currently running through Saturday, March 19. The celebration began Sunday, March 7, with an opening awards reception Sunday in the Capitol Rotunda. The artwork will then be shifted to the North Corridor for display during the remainder of the show.
