2010 Summer art class exhibition

Children's Art Class Exhibition

Everyone is invited to a special exhibition of artwork by students in Chinati’s Summer Art Classes on Friday, July 2, 2010 from 5 – 8 PM at the Ice Plant on East Oak Street in Marfa. The event is free and open to the public and will feature the grand premiere of the student films, with popcorn and other refreshments for all!

Over the past two weeks, students in Kindergarten through 8th grade have directed and produced their own animated films with local artists Jennifer Lane and David Hollander and crafted furniture out of some surprising materials with instructor Michael Roch. This week, students will design and build a special hand-made theatre space with designer Peter Stanley where folks can sit back, relax and enjoy these colorful and delightful movies during the opening.

Summer Art Class students and instructors will appear on KRTS, Marfa Public Radio‘s Talk at Ten on Wednesday, June 30 at 10:00 AM.
