Kids Do Art: Now through March 1st!

February 7, 2014

KidsDoArtLOGOChildren bring an edge to art that is hard to duplicate. The free spirit they express when working with pencils or paint or molding clay is a clear expression of youth. Each work of art carries with it the intricacies of a well developed vision, but gives us the feeling it was laid down without a second of hesitation. Beginning February 8th and running through March 1st, Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley, Minnesota will have on display over 600 pieces of art…created by children!

At the Kids Do Art exhibit, curated by your’s truly, you will see artwork from children of all ages, from kindergarten through high school. Some have used traditional mediums, like watercolor, pastels and graphite and others have used more “new age” mediums like digital imagery and collage. There is also a wonderful collection of three-dimensional work.


On February 8th and February 15th, there are open-to-the-public receptions for the artists. During these receptions, visitors can meet the young artists and see them in action as they “Draw a Winter Story” on the wall of the main classroom at the art center. The receptions begin at 1:00pm and run until 3:30pm. The receptions (and the exhibits) are free.



So, if you and your family are looking for some free culture this month, look no further than Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley, Minnesota. The gallery walls are currently covered from floor to ceiling with hundreds of pieces of art from talented Minnesota children. It is a breath-taking exhibit to be enjoyed by the entire family.

Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts is located at 6666 East River Road, Fridley, MN 55432. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
