When you were a kid…
what inspired you to make art?
was it encouraged and nurtured?
was it as natural as breathing?
Twenty established local artists explore the history of their own creative development. Each artist is presenting their childhood artwork and responding to it through words and art…reflecting on their own past and process, and how it relates to their contemporary work.
This exhibit illuminates the importance of art education and supporting creative practice for all kids. Especially in a time when the arts are desperately under-supported, we celebrate the importance of art.
