Arts for Our Park: Creating Traditions

New exhibit featuring art from the children of Leupp and Grand Canyon Schools

GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - This year's annual Kolb Studio student art show theme is "Creating Traditions." This year's exhibit theme invites the K-12 students of Grand Canyon Unified School District and Leupp Schools Inc. to creatively explore their favorite traditions through any form of visual art.

Some of the questions students will consider are: What unique traditions do you or your family follow? What traditions do you have in common with others in your community? What are the traditions in your school or community that you love to celebrate? How do people create new traditions? How do the traditions that are most meaningful to you express who you are as a person, or as a member of a family or community?

This show will be juried by artists and educators from both Grand Canyon Village and Leupp. Prizes will be awarded in age categories and a Best of Show will be selected by the jury panel and announced at the opening reception.

An opening reception and awards ceremony will be held Wednesday, March 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Historic Kolb Studio, South Rim Village at Grand Canyon National Park. The exhibit will be on display through April 17.
