Arts Alive’s 2018 Exhibition comes to life May 14 and runs through June 8, 2018 at Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts. The Arts Alive Exhibit displays artworks in various mediums and disciplines from artists and craftspeople from all over the country. This year’s exhibition judge Parker Seward, assistant professor of art at University of North Alabama, will select the winners of nearly $5,000 in artistic awards.
The Arts Alive exhibition is one of two fund raisers for the Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts Volunteers. Arts Alive supports Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts Volunteers Endowments to school art programs in Lauderdale and Colbert counties. Last year’s Arts Alive Festival endowed nearly $5,000 to local schools for art programs and projects. Children’s artwork created by local elementary schools will also be on display in the art center breezeway during the exhibition.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see this impressive collection of fine, folk, and craft works!
