Just as nearly everyone in the world, the routine daily life of the students in The Akron School for the Arts at Firestone Community Learning Center came to an end in mid-March. A new reality of quarantine, mask wearing, social distancing and distance learning has taken it’s place.
These students have completed the junior level of the Visual Art program in The Akron School for the Arts which is the beginning of individual explorations of media, concept, and theme. This exhibit represents the work students were involved in before life went ON PAUSE.
The show opened, Friday, Aug, 28, and runs until Sat., Sept. 12 in the Transition Gallery. In addition, the show is open starting at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020, and through Artwalk from 5-8 p.m. Artwalk is an art/retail event organized by Summit Artspace on East Market in downtown Akron on the first Saturday of the month.
