The Rockford Area Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of our Youth Art exhibit hosted at the Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens! Art exhibit opening on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 11:00 am at the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens lobby, located on 1354 North 2nd Street in Rockford, Il.
SPARK! 2020 Youth and Teen Arts Apprentices worked outside in the beautiful gardens of the Nicholas Conservatory. The summer art theme was Social Justice Artwork and Digital Journalism skill-building. Youth interviewed and filmed community members, created stop-motion animation videos, and painted a mural banner series. This unique art exhibit will run through the end of October.
This program was made possible by contributions from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, the Illinois Arts Council, the Alpine Kiwanis Charities Fund, contributions from the city of Rockford and donations from Arts Council members. Thank you!
All health and safety procedures will be followed inside exhibit area.
