Arts Benicia supports the talent of the Next Generation of artists with this exhibition of artwork created by Benicia students. The work of students ranging from seniors in high school through Kindergarteners will be displayed in this diverse representation of creative expression. Participants will come from private and pubic schools and afterschool programs.
This celebration of youthful creativity began in 1996 at Arts Benicia with great support from the community. After a long hiatus Executive Director Larnie Fox revived the program in 2010. This is grand collaborative effort between the educational leaders of our community, their students, familes and Arts Benicia. This is an opportunity for Benicia’s youth to gain awareness of their artistic possibilities as well as to professionally highlight their talents.
Arts Benicia, a non-profit visual arts organization, gallery and arts education center, is located at 991 Tyler St., #114 in Benicia’s historic Arsenal district. The gallery is open from 12 to 5 Thursday through Sunday during exhibitions.
