GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – The Hall County Student Art Show, the largest collection of student art in the area, opens today and is showing through May 3 at Bartanbach’s Venue in downtown Grand Island.
If you’ve ever seen the annual Hall County Student Art Show, you know it’s one of the wildest, most eclectic and diverse shows on Stuhr’s annual exhibits calendar. Even though the show has been moved from the Stuhr Building, which is under renovation, to Bartenbach’s Venue, the show remains a great showcase for Hall County’s youngest artists.
The show will line the walls at The Venue with pieces ranging from pencil to paint, sculpture to Photoshop, abstract to realism and everything in between. Each year, a majority of high schools and middle schools in Hall County choose the best work produced by their students, and coordinate with Stuhr to be part of this show. For many young artists, this will be the first time their work will hang in a professional space. The participating schools this year include Grand Island Northwest High School, Grand Island Senior High, Grand Island Central Catholic, Walnut Middle School, Barr Middle School, Westridge Middle School, Heartland Lutheran High School, Northwest High School and Trinity Lutheran.
There is no admission to see the show. The public can view this year’s “Hall County Student Art Show” show from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays at Bartanbach’s Venue, which is closed Sundays and Mondays. Viewing may also be done by appointment. For more information, call the museum at (308) 385-5316.
