The 2016 Williamson County Art Show is almost here!
Starting Saturday, February 27, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts will display artwork created by students from all over Williamson County. More than 300 students from kindergarten to twelfth grade are featured. Elementary and middle schools select two works per grade level while high schools choose two works from each art class offered by the particular school.
“This annual event is one of the major highlights of our programs district-wide,” said WCS Fine Arts Specialist Melissa Dufrechou. “We are grateful for the Frist for sponsoring this event and allowing our top students to have their artwork displayed along with some the world’s masterpieces. We hope that when students and their parents see their work in a nationally-recognized fine art museum, it will encourage them to pursue their passions and become lifelong lovers of art.”
The opening of the art show is February 27 from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., and the exhibit will remain in the Education Corridor of the Frist until March 13.
For free admission to the opening on February 27, print and redeem this flyer. Discounted parking is available only in the Frist Center parking lots, but space is limited. Frist parking is $3 and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Below is a table of suggested time for students and families to tour the art show. While it’s not required to visit during the listed times, it does help with the flow of traffic within the building.
