The Wasatch Back Student Art Show is Kimball Art Center’s annual celebration of our community’s youngest artists. All Kindergarten through 12th grade students in Summit and Wasatch counties are invited to participate, creating work around a common theme. This year’s theme, inspired by the work of Marie Watt, Adrian Esparza, and Elodie Blanchard, is our material culture. The unfettered imagination of these highly skilled and creative students produces artworks that are both revealing and thought-provoking.
“As a mother of 5 children, business entrepreneur, and founder of a not-for-profit independent K- 8 school, I am a proponent of art education for our student community. Kimball Art Center offers students education in art and hands-on experience to learn what art is all about, what it means, and why was it is made? Through Kimball’s commitment to spread the love of art, students improve their critical thinking skills, communication, discipline, creativity, and self-esteem.
Congratulations to the participating students for making this year’s exhibit a success.’ – Tomilee Tilley
