Reception: Friday, August 18, 2017, from 6:00 - 9:00 PM
Close out the summer by joining the Firehouse Art Center in recognizing the creativity of Norman’s children during the 2017 Children’s Summer Art Show. From August 11 through 26, 2017, this annual exhibition will display artwork from the almost 200 students who attended this year’s Children’s Summer Art Program. A special reception for the Children’s Summer Art Show will be held on Friday, August 18, 2017, at the Firehouse, from 6 to 9 PM in celebration of these young artists.
Each summer from June to August, the Firehouse Art Center presents the Children’s Summer Art Program, a five-session series of 30 visual art classes for students ages five to fourteen. The program is designed to educate and encourage children to express themselves through the arts with original ideas and concepts. At the end of the summer each year, one piece of artwork from each student who participated in that year’s program is selected for inclusion in the Children’s Summer Art Show. The exhibition is an exciting experience for the students, allowing them to showcase the effort they put into their art through a professional gallery setting. This year’s art show will feature two-dimensional and three-dimensional art in a variety of mediums, inspired by master artists from Picasso and Calder to Vermeer and Magritte.
The Firehouse Art Center is funded in part by select grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council, Norman Arts Council, Allied Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the City of Norman, as well as corporate sponsorships from Republic Bank & Trust and Fowler Automotive. The FAC’s programming would not be possible without the support of individual donors and memberships.
