Last weekend, the Museum hosted a reception for the opening of the 35th annual Student Art Exhibition showcasing artwork of north central Wisconsin students in grades 9-12. Visitors congratulated and supported the next generation of artists and enjoyed their creative efforts. Be sure to see the students’ artwork, on view through April 1.
Also this month, 715 Wausau 4K students visit the Museum to see Dinotopia and engage in an art-making experience. Dinosaur shapes come to life as the students individualize them with vibrant colors. These student artworks will be on display during a 4K Family Night, March 13, from 6-7:30 pm.
The Youth Art Month celebration extends throughout the spring at the Woodson Art Museum. The Museum’s Teen Art Council is organizing SPACE: A Teen Art Exhibition. Teens are invited to consider what space means to them and how they would express the concept of space in an artwork. Space has many definitions and teens are being asked to interpret the word through their artwork.
All entries must be submitted by March 31 and will be posted online anonymously. Two dozen artworks will be selected by an online public vote, April 10 – April 20. SPACE: A Teen Art Exhibition will be displayed at the Woodson Art Museum May 1 – June 3. A reception for artists, friends, and family will be held on Friday, May 11, 6 – 8pm, to celebrate the creative efforts of the artists as well as the organizational efforts of the Teen Art Council.
Keep celebrating, supporting, and encouraging the value of art education for children of all ages throughout March and beyond!
