CLC Art Walk to feature "doors" to student creativity
As part of Lincoln's monthly art walk, the Community Learning Center's Art Walk joins area galleries Friday, May 4 from 6-8pm, at Old City Hall, 9th and O Streets. The exhibit will include more than 300 pieces of art from elementary, middle and high school students at Lincoln Public Schools, displayed on two full floors of the old City Hall building and this year expanding into the adjacent outdoor park area.
The theme of this year's exhibit is the theme of the Community Learning Centers: "Open Doors, Open Minds." In connection with that theme, the event will spotlight eight special doors – created by students from eight CLC sites – that have been decorated to match the styles of different Impressionist artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Monet and O'Keefe. In addition, the artwork exhibit will include a wide variety of mediums, styles and methods.
Student music will be provided by the Lincoln Music Teachers Association.
All featured artwork was created by students who attend one of the 25 Lincoln Community Learning Centers, located in neighborhood schools and serving as the hub of service delivery to improve student learning and youth development, engage and support families and engage and strengthen neighborhoods.
