Exhibition of artwork and writing from the Artbound! and Writers in the Schools (WITS) residencies at Wharton Elementary
Writers in the Schools and Art League Houston have partnered to present WhARTon NARraTives, an exhibition of over sixty pieces of artwork and writing by second and third grade students from the Wharton Elementary School who have been taking part in Art League Houston’s Artbound! and Writer in the Schools In-School residency programs. The exhibition opens with a free public reception between 2:00 – 3:30 pm on Saturday, February 11, 2012, and runs through March 2, 2012 in the Project Gallery, 1953 Montrose Blvd. City Council Member Ellen Cohen will be the keynote speaker.
Through the collaborative project called Artbound!, Art League Houston brings visual artists into the classroom to make the arts more accessible to inner-city youth. WhARTon NARraTives, the first exhibition of its kind at this dual-language academy, showcases the synergy that results when visual arts and writing come together.
