In recognition of Veteran’s Day and art therapy programs at the National Ability Center (NAC), the Kimball Art Center is hosting the dual exhibition One Nation. One’s national identity is a profound component of one’s life, influencing everything about a person and how they choose to live. Kimball is using the theme of national identity as an umbrella for exploration in the classroom through the Elementary Visual Arts (EVA) program and in the artist community through the Park City Professional Artists Association (PCPAA).
PCPAA is a group of Summit & Wasatch County visual artists working to promote exhibitions and encourage professionalism, education, networking, and the growth of the visual arts for the benefit of the community. Kimball has asked PCPAA members to create their personal, visual interpretations of national identity.
The EVA program’s mission is to allow every elementary school student in the Park City School District an experience with visual arts through their unique creativity. The goal of EVA is to provide children with a solid foundation in the visual arts which allows immediate, creative expression and creates a continued participation at higher levels of learning. EVA teachers have been working with students to create personal interpretations of the American flag while learning about Modern Art. A selection of these works will be on exhibition in the Garage Gallery November 11, 2014 – January 4, 2015.
