Student Art Brings Color and Creativity to Downtown Bristol

December 03, 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. Our third student gallery of art went up on November 30, showcasing colorful and vibrant works from K through 6th grade students at Fairmount Elementary School.

“The works on display this month are full of life, and it’s wonderful to see the different ways the students have expressed their creativity,” said René Rodgers, Associate Director of Believe I Bristol. “By giving children the chance to be part of our arts community, we hope that they will grow to love the arts and make them an important part of their lives – and one day they will be the ones keeping the arts alive here in our downtown!”

Artwork by the Fairmount Elementary School students will be on display until January 2, 2013.
