NewArt Northwest Kids: Language Arts

February 26, 2013 to June 02, 2013

Language Arts is the theme for the Sixth Annual “New Art Northwest Kids” exhibition. More than 40 works submitted by area K-12 students will be on view in the Education Corridor Galleries. The art on view focuses on the integration of writing and visual art, and was inspired by the JSMA’s fall exhibitions “Lesley Dill’s Poetic Visions: From Shimmer to Sister Gertrude Morgan” and “Good Grief: A Selection of Original Art from Fifty Years of Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts.” The JSMA received over 200 submissions that were juried by Delyn Dunham, JSMA exhibition interpreter; Summer Knowlton, JSMA tour coordinator; and Sharon Kaplan, JSMA museum educator and “New Art Northwest Kids” exhibition coordinator.

Participating schools include Cesar Chavez Elementary, Eugene, Charlemagne French Immersion School, Eugene, Classical Conversations (homeschool), Eugene, Corridor Alternative Elementary School, Eugene, Eugene Christian School, Oak Hill School, Eugene, Family School, Eugene, Irving Elementary School, Eugene, Lowell Junior/Senior High School, Lowell, O’Hara Catholic School, Eugene, Oakridge High School, Oakridge, South Eugene High School, and Sutherlin High School, Sutherlin.
