The Art Connection Student Exhibition will take place in the Carnegie Museum of Art’s Hall of Sculpture May 4 – May 19. An Opening Reception will be held on Sunday, May 5, 3-5pm. This event is free and open to the public, just check into the admissions desk for your free pass. Students grades 5 – 9 worked 18 weeks to produce thoughtful works, please come out to support their incredible efforts. I am currently installing my 6th graders’ work and will update with my progress, sweat (and likely blood and tears) through instagram.
This year, in addition to the student show in the Hall of Sculpture, a show of Faculty works will be on view in the Balcony Studios. I will be showing two new works and a few older pieces.
In celebration of The Art Connection’s 90th year, CMOA’s May Third Thursday will be centered around education and this incredible program. The event is Thursday, May 16, 7-10pm. You can pre-register for $10 as an adult and $5 as a student. I’ll be there mingling, teaching, gushing … I have also been invited to participate in an education panel preceding the social event, more details on this coming soon!
