Emerging Visions: Becoming
March 17–April 7
Opening reception: March 17, 5–7pm
Emerging Visions offers Fairfax County high school students the opportunity to work directly with Greater Reston Arts Center’s (GRACE’s) education staff to create exceptional artworks to be exhibited in the GRACE gallery in celebration of Youth Art Month. Students participating in the 2018 Emerging Visions: Becoming exhibition were encouraged to explore the theme of “becoming” as it relates to the prior GRACE exhibition Sue Wrbican: Well Past the Echo (September 9–November 18, 2017).
The 2018 exhibition includes work from students at Herndon High School, Oakton High School, and South Lakes High School.
The opening reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
