Regional Minds Wide Open Launch at The Art League on March 8
The Art League is thrilled to be selected as one of the regional launch sites for the statewide kick-off of MINDS WIDE OPEN: Virginia Celebrates Children and the Arts. The Torpedo Factory and The Art League will host the Alexandria launch on Thursday, March 8 starting at 7:00 pm. Events take place in the Target Gallery and The Art League Gallery.
"Play" is our kick-off for the Minds Wide Open initiative. This juried exhibit encourages artists to explore whimsical, playful works, the activity or idea of fun and play, or actual interactive works which encourage visitors to become involved in artwork on an entirely new level.
MINDS WIDE OPEN: Virginia Celebrates Children and the Arts will include thousands of special events and programs offered between March and June of 2012. Events include plays, choreography, compositions, and exhibitions of paintings, photography or films that have been created by children, feature children as the primary focus, or can be educational or entertaining for children and their families. This celebration is a collaboration of hundreds of participating artists and cultural organizations and is a demonstration of the breadth and diversity of arts and culture across the Commonwealth.
