Identity: Who AM I?, an exhibition of teen artwork by 80 middle and high school students from Arlington and Belmont, is now on display in the Gibbs Gallery at the Arlington Center for the Arts, 41 Foster Street, Arlington. The exhibit will be on view through March 16, 2011, with a Reception and Awards Ceremony on Friday, March 16, from 7:00-8:30pm. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
The exhibit includes both large-scale and intimate self portraits by teens, a fascinating series of contemporary and archival digital photography, and a wide array of intriguing sculptures, including three life-size human figures created by students from Chenery Middle School in Belmont.
This is the Arlington Center for the Arts’ 5th annual exhibition of teen art, designed to give students in the visual arts an opportunity to show their work in a public venue and help the rest of us catch a glimpse into teens’ identity, self-perception and inner lives.
The Gibbs Gallery is free and open to the public, Monday-Friday, 9:00-5:00 pm. For those not able to visit the gallery, an online slideshow is available at www.acarts.org. For more information, contact the Arlington Center for the Arts, (781) 648-6220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
