Downtown Duluth Art Collective Partners with Art of Ed's Sake for 2nd Annual Art Supply Drive, during the month of August, to benefit Duluth Public School Art Students.
For the second year, the Downtown Duluth Arts Collective (DDAC) is partnering with Art for Ed’s Sake (A4ES), to collect and raise money for art supplies to benefit Duluth Public School students in their art classes throughout the school year. This year’s Art Supplies 4 Kids (AS4K) Drive is hoping to top money raised and supplies collected during the 2018 Drive. The drive will run August 7 through August 30, culminating with the Downtown Duluth Arts Walk, also on August 30. Donations of physical art supplies may be dropped off at Arts Walk locations during the month of August. In addition, financial donations may be placed in the brightly colored red/yellow/blue cube donation boxes bearing the AS4K logo at Arts Walk locations, or made online through Zeitgeist.
Duluth Public School Art Teachers do a fabulous job each year teaching our youngest artists how to express their creativity with limited budgets for art materials. On average teachers have: $5 per year per student for Elementary aged students; $14.00 per semester per student for Middle School students; and $32.00 per semester per student for High School Art students. While our art teachers work together to buy supplies in bulk and distribute them as economically as possible, art supplies are expensive! As a result, some teachers have in the past had to supplement their classrooms supplies, purchasing supplies using their own incomes.
For further information please contact the Joseph Nease Gallery manager, Amanda Hunter, by email at email@example.com or by phone at 218-461-8380.
On View through November 2019
Minnesota State Capital, Third Floor Gallery
The Minnesota State Capitol Art Gallery is a completely new opportunity for the public to experience visual art by Minnesota Artists. The Minnesota State Capitol Arts Advisory Committee was created through legislation and is a body of volunteers who are creating the process for artists to submit work for exhibition in the MN State Capitol.
Vern Northrup, visual storyteller and photographer, is an enrolled member of the Fond du Lac Nation in Northern Minnesota. He is an interpreter, educator, and learner. He uses only the camera on his phone to capture the settings of where he grew up. The nostalgia he creates educates the viewer about the rhythm of nature, preservation of tradition, and the relationship between resiliency and sustainability. Akinomaage will be on view to November 2019.
The Duluth Art institute is the premier contemporary visual arts organization of Minnesota’s northeast region. With 112 years of advocating, educating, and community involvement, the Duluth Art Institute provides artists, patron, viewers, and creative learners unique opportunities to engage in the community, apply art to daily life, and celebrate artists as they grapple with social, cultural, and political experiences.
The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public. Support and thanks to the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation and thanks to a grant through the Minnesota State Arts Board and to voters of Minnesota, who made possible through legislation an appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
