“Art In City Hall” Presents Mini-Masterpieces From The Barnes Foundation, On View Now Through September 21
Tipping its hat to the recent Barnes Foundation opening on the Parkway, “Art in City Hall”‘s latest exhibit, Mini-Masterpieces from the Barnes Foundation, celebrates the artistic talent of local youth.
On view through September 21 in Room 116 of City Hall, Mini-Masterpieces features 60 vibrant interpretations of popular Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works from the Barnes, all created by students at Hancock and Henry Elementary Schools.
The project is presented by the City’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy and administered by Fresh Artists, a non-profit organization dedicated to civic engagement through art making, in collaboration with the Barnes Foundation.
Not only does the exhibit highlight some of our city’s youngest artists, but it also reinforces the importance of quality arts education and a greater need to make the arts accessible to our youth.
For more information, visit Art in City Hall’s website.
The gallery is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays, and is accesible directly through the north set of double doors in City Hall’s Market East portal.
