Annual Earth Day Children’s Art Show: Web of Life

April 15, 2020 - April 26, 2020


This Earth Day, we invite the region’s youngest artists (up to age 12) to explore the variety of creatures that make up the Web of Life on our planet. Artwork can explore local or foreign ecosystems, and can focus on individual plants or animals and their place in the great web of life, or on entire connected systems.

Open call gallery exhibition for children up to age 12.

Meet-the-Artists Reception: Saturday, April 18, 1:00pm – 3:00pm

The region’s youngest artists are invited to submit artwork to celebrate EARTH DAY!

This show will welcome a wide variety of work celebrating the connections that bind all of life on earth together.
