Gallery I: Personal Geographies - Maps as Art (Youth Art Month Exhibit)
Presented annually in partnership with the Howard County Public School System, this year’s Youth Art Month exhibit features hundreds of works by HCPSS students in grades K-12. The students’ artworks, selected from public school art classes throughout the county, investigate the many ways that maps inform and influence the way we see and navigate within the visual world.
Gallery II: No Boundaries
In partnership with Howard County Recreation and Parks’ Department of Therapeutic Recreation and Inclusion Services, this exhibit showcases work by youth and adult artists with developmental disabilities. Often vibrant and playful, the work was created in the Exploring Art and Focus on Art programs offered by the Department of Therapeutic Recreation and Inclusion Services. In these programs, youth and adults with developmental disabilities have the opportunity to explore a variety of media, styles, and methods of creating art.
