Local Students Display “Diversity” Artwork
May 4-12, 2013
Aronoff Center – Fifth Third Bank Theater
Cincinnati, OH – How do the children of Greater Cincinnati see and interpret the world around them? The Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) explores this question through its annual Student Art Show, which exhibits artwork by local students. This year’s theme is “Diversity.” The exhibition will be on display in the Aronoff Center’s Fifth Third Bank Theater (7th & Main Street, downtown Cincinnati) from Saturday, May 4 – Sunday, May 12, 2013. Exhibition hours are Friday, 4:00 – 8:00 PM; Saturday, 12:00 – 5:00 PM; and Sunday, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The Student Art Show is free and open to the public.
Representing students from grades K – 8, the diverse collection of two-dimensional artwork will include mediums from pencil drawings to printmaking to textiles. Now in its eleventh year, the Student Art Show is organized and presented annually by CAA’s Department of Education and Community Relations, with the assistance of the Weston Art Gallery.
“CAA is excited to be presenting the Student Art Show for its eleventh year. Every year students create a unique interpretation of the theme, which this year is Diversity,” says Kathleen Riemenschneider, CAA’s Assistant Director of Education & Community Relations. “The program has been a wonderful opportunity for students to creatively express and share their views with their friends, family, and the public.”
