The greater Round Rock community is invited to the 2018 Youth Art Month Exhibition at the Round Rock City Hall on display from March 5 through April 27, 2018. The exhibition is hosted at the Round Rock City Hall, 221 E. Main Street Round Rock, Texas 78681 as a partnership between the City of Round Rock and Round Rock ISD. The Round Rock City Hall is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and closed on the weekends. Work in the exhibition is a selection from across the Round Rock ISD Visual Arts program and showcases student artists from Kindergarten through Grade 12 in a variety of two-dimensional and three-dimensional media.
Student achievement is a top priority in Round Rock ISD, and we are rewarded by the accomplishments of our students daily. Exhibition of work is the final stage for the artist and is their performance for the community.
The public is invited to join us at 6:00 pm on Thursday, March 22nd at the Round Rock City Council meeting, a proclamation for Youth Art Month and recognition of the exhibition will be made by the council.
Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs. It was created in 1961 by ACMI, a non-profit association of art and craft materials manufacturers, in cooperation with the National Art Education Association (NAEA). In RRISD, we celebrate Youth Art Month in multiple ways. During March, many campuses host Gallery Night Exhibitions that showcase the work of students K-12, Elementary Art Faculty host a district-wide student exhibition at the Performing Arts Center with an opening reception attended by 700+ parents, student artists and community members along with selling YAM t-shirts to over 1000 people in our community each year. We also partner with our community to produce a billboard on IH 35 from March 12-16, 2018 along with this exhibition at city hall. Additionally, the month of March has been declared March for the Arts by the RRISD Council of the Arts.
