Student Art in the Heart of Bristol

October 02, 2012

The Arts and Entertainment District is hosting the 2nd Annual Student Art Display in Downtown Bristol. In an effort to “Cultivate Bristol’s Creativity,” we have invited the local schools to help us beautify our community by providing art to decorate the front windows of the former Hayes Furniture Building on State Street.

Each school that participates will have a month-long display period to present their students’ art in the space. The first student art went up on October 1, showcasing vibrant and colorful works from the 4th and 5th grade art students of Holston View Elementary School.

Jean Burnette, the owner of Boxwood Antiques, said, “I love seeing the different pieces created by the students. It’s a great way for them to participate in our local arts community, and to get to know all of the arts on offer in our downtown.”

Artwork by the Holston View Elementary students will be on display until October 31.
