Folklores and Odysseys Exhibit
November 15, 2019 - January 17, 2019
Area youth bring modern folklore to life in a narrative exhibit showcasing the artistic expressions of Fayetteville and Springdale students as they share their life experiences through painting and sculpture. These students, through the University of Arkansas School of Art and the Art Ventures K-12 Youth Initiative, were given the opportunity to create an exhibition theme. Their selection of ‘Modern Folklore’ allowed these students to share their respective histories and cultural traditions. Under the mentorship of student teachers from the Art Education Program at the School of Art, the students told their individual stories through stylistic interpretation, weaving an exhibit representing a visual cultural tapestry.
