LCVA to exhibit Highlights from the 2019 Start with Art: Learn for Life Annual Youth Art Month Exhibition in Hull Education Center
Each spring, the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts hosts the Annual Area Youth Art Month Exhibition, which showcases around 1500 artworks created by students from public, private, and home schools in the thirteen surrounding counties. At the close of the exhibition, one work from each school is selected for a year-long highlights exhibition. The chosen artworks are matted, framed, and hung in the hallways of Longwood’s Hull Education Center, where they serve as an inspiration to tomorrow’s teachers.
These student artists will be honored by Longwood University at a ceremony and opening reception on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. The event will be held in the Hull Education Center (on the corner of Brock Commons and Franklin Street) at Longwood University.
