The Arts Alive exhibit, “Kids’ Art Rocks!” will hang until August in the Tibbits Opera House Art Gallery. The gallery is open via appointment during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm, and during all events.
Kids’ Art Rocks! is a program of the Tibbits Foundation that mats and frames student artwork for lease by area businesses for a year. Prior to 2018, teachers would submit their best work to this program. In 2018, Arts Alive took over the program and opened it up to allow for submission by anyone completing pre/K-12 curriculum. This allows for a broader scope of work from homeschool groups or those attending schools outside of Branch County. All pieces are then judged by a panel of judges and the top pieces are then matted and/or framed along with student bios.
All submitted artwork – whether chosen for the lease or not – will be displayed in the Tibbits gallery from June 21 through Aug 16.
