9/1/2021 to 10/31/2021 | Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic Site | Pilot Knob, MO
Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic site is excited to restart its “Meet the Artists” series of art shows for the 2021-2022 season.
To start us off, we will be featuring original artwork from the Arcadia Valley after-school program. This program teaches the Acradia Valley youngsters about art and its importance to them, as part of a broad and diverse curriculum.
The “Amazing Me!” exhibition features paintings created by elementary students via a partnership with local teaching artist Pamela Kugel-Rolls and the visual arts nonprofit Tangleworks® and Arcadia Valley Schools’ 21st Century after-school program. In these self-portrait pieces, students integrate drawing from observation with the exploration of surroundings, activities, weather, likes and dislikes, and imaginings that reveal the unseen side of “me.” The work in this collection, created during the 2020-2021 school year, represents a sampling of the many wonderful pieces created by students who participated in the program.
This show will run through the months of September and October at Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic site. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Sept. 10. For more information, call Brick or Bryan at 573-546-3454.
