Youth-Adult Art Show
YOAB showcased the work of over 50 local artists at its sixth annual juried youth-adult art exhibit, "Voices VI: Perspectives of the Artistic Soul" at Rembrandt Yard. The reception was wildly successful -- attended by about 250 people, mostly teen-agers. There was live jazz guitar played by a Fairview High School student. Many attendees commented that it wasn't possible to tell which art was done by youth, and which by adults. The show was up for two weeks. Art classes from both Boulder and New Vista high schools took field trips to see the show. Thanks to Rembrandt Yard for donating the space, to Jane Saltzman of Open Arts for her curatorial genius, and to Antonio Laudisio for donating much of the food.
Organizer Mariela Lopez, a junior at Boulder High School, said "This show is a great way for the community to see and admire the talent in Boulder. The art is awe-inspiring. Seeing other peoples' work makes you appreciate creativity. I was surprised that there are so many great artists my age and I'm glad they're in the show".
After the show a participating artist sent the following e-mail.
I'm a youth artist that was included in this year's Voices show. I just want to thank you for the wonderful job you guys did with the show. It means a lot to me, and to my friends who were featured, to have this kind of opportunity. The show was an inspiration.
Keep up the amazing work!
