Last year, I entered some student artwork into a contest sponsored by the Raleigh Historical Development Commission. The RHDC was celebrating their 50th anniversary, and asked students from all over Wake County (kindergarten through 12th grade) to submit a work of art that represented their favorite building in Raleigh. Two of our students won ribbons in this competition (including the “Best in Show” award), and the curator at Marbles was very impressed with our school's artwork. At the awards ceremony, she approached me and asked if I would be interested doing an exclusive show at the museum.
After collecting numerous pieces at various grade levels, I have compiled just about 40 different works of art completed by over 75 students. This show is now on display at the Marbles Kids Museum from January 6, 2014 until March 2, 2014. The artists whose work is on display will receive special passes for free admission to the museum as well as their families.
