  • Reception Thursday, May 17, 5:30-7:30 pm

Who I Am is an exhibit focusing on personal expressions of cultural identity:  Who are we? What makes us who we are?  The exhibit showcases artwork from individual young artists in our community. It also shares artwork from youth who participate in art education programs of The Arts Center.

Special Reception:  Thursday, May 17, 5:30-7:30 pm, celebrates the creativity of young artists, and is a chance to meet teaching artists and learn more about the positive impacts of the arts on young people in our community.

The Arts Center is grateful for the support received from our 2018 Young Artist Show exhibit sponsor NW Drivers Ed.

The Arts Center’s mission is to create opportunities for learners of all ages to experience the arts and explore creativity with the guidance of professional artists and arts educators. All education programs provide experiences that enrich students’ lives and learning through experimentation, play, and collaboration with others. Quality integrated arts education is delivered in-house, at public, private and alternative schools, and through partner organizations such as Community Outreach, Inc., and Oak Creek Youth Correctional Facility. Artist residencies this past year have focused on building cultural agency and equity in classrooms.

Arts education programs of The Arts Center are donation and grant supported. For many years benefactor Maureen Ovregaard and her family were major sponsors of the program with an annual gift. Upon her passing a number of other community members stepped up to support creative arts programs for youth, and the evening reception invites the public to learn more and support this program.
