In celebration of Youth Art Month (YAM), Ticonic Gallery and Railroad Square Cinema Lobby present the work of local students from grades pre-K through 12. This is the 8th consecutive year the gallery is featuring artwork from area schools, childcare institutions, and home school groups. The exhibition will include a digital slide show from over 15 local schools and an interactive art display exploring the question, “What do you love about where you live?”
Established in 1961, YAM is a national program designed to celebrate visual art education for grades K – 12 with a goal to increase community understanding and interest in art and art education through involvement in exhibitions, workshops, and other creative ventures. This year’s YAM theme is “Art Connects Us.”
Ticonic Gallery is free and open to the public Monday – Friday from 12 – 5 p.m. Railroad Square Cinema Lobby is free and open to the public Monday-Sunday from 2:00 – 9:00 p.m. All gallery visitors are required to wear masks.
Thank you to exhibition sponsors: Colby College Museum of Art and the City of Waterville.
