Students design exhibit for area artists | Arts & Culture
School partners with museum on project
A Cross Plains coffee house will host a student art show this week.
A reception will be held Crossroads Coffeehouse in Cross Plains on Thursday from 4-6 p.m. for the Everyday Art Project, a joint venture between Clark Street Community School and the Madison Children's Museum.
The exhibit profiles three everyday artists who live and work in Dane County. Students worked with the artists and MCC staff to design the art exhibit; and CSCS teachers Robyn Acker and Jim Mathews oversaw the project.
"Everyday Art" was originally displayed at the museum but is now at Crossroads Coffeehouse, 2020 Main St., until March 10, Mathews said.
"The hope is that this will also kick-start a second round of interest,'' Mathews said.
Everyday Art is a citizen ethnography project that engages youth and adults in discovering and documenting everyday art and artists in their community. One outcome of the project is an exhibit currently on display at the Madison Children’s Museum.
