This exhibition is presented through the generosity of the Gary Silverstein Memorial Art Fund, named in memory of Gary Silverstein, an artist and educator, who received his Masters degree in Early Childhood Education at Wheelock College. The fund's purpose is to facilitate young people's appreciation of the visual arts.
This exhibition, presented every other year, is meant to give children the opportunity to view their work and that of their peers in a professional setting. The hope is that this experience will leave a profound impact on their lives and their relationship to the arts. The artwork is submitted by the individual Art Specialists from each of the participating schools. This year the Towne Art Gallery will highlight 11 schools.
As a teaching and child advocacy institution, our primary mission at Wheelock College is to improve the lives of children and families. We view the arts as life-enriching and a necessary component to the education of children.
