Kids Do Art @ Banfill Locke Center for the Arts

One of the best kept secrets of the Twin Cities is a little art center on East River Road in Fridley; Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts. Every year this wonderful little art center hosts what I consider the coolest art exhibit around.

For starters, admission to the show is FREE!

Besides a great admission price, this art exhibit is perfect for art-lovers of all ages. The exhibit is called Kids Do Art.

All of the art work (hundreds of pieces) was created by elementary school children from the nearby schools. The show features beautiful artwork from five year-olds and equally amazing art from kids who are knocking on the door of teen-dom.

It is a phenomenal show which should not be missed. I have seen many art exhibits and even participated in a handful myself. But the feeling you get when you walk in to BLCA for the Kids Do Art exhibit is unforgettable. From the moment you step in to the gallery space, you are entranced by amazing splashes of color and unbelievable talent, covering the walls from ceiling to floor. It’s inspiring on so many levels.

The gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10am to 4pm.

On Saturday, February 23rd, I will be hosting a free “make your own picture book” art workshop during the show. The “open door” workshop begins at 1pm and goes until 3pm.
