AMS student art is on display in the Robert Shetterly’s Americans Who Tell the Truth exhibit at the YMI Center. The 7th grader's art was inspired by the citizen heroes they found the most interesting and relatable to, then the students wrote about them and drew portraits of the “hero” of their choice. As an example, a student chose Martin Luther King Jr. as a civil rights leader to research and draw. Every seventh graders art has been chosen to appear in this gallery walk, as well as the eighth grade colleges. The 8th grade took self portraits and made a collage surrounding our faces, telling/showing about who we are, how we see ourselves, and our goals in life using magazine scraps.
The art will be displayed at the YMI Cultural Center (39 Market St., Asheville NC) starting on Saturday, September 30 going until Nov. 19th.
Hours: Tuesdays- Saturdays 11 am- 4pm. Sundays 1-4pm
