Criss Library Welcomes Children's Art Exhibition
Omaha - Artwork by students from the GBT (Growing and Building Together) Academy of the Arts in Omaha is on display at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Criss Library through Saturday, Sept. 12.
"He's Got the World World in His Hands" showcases pieces by students ages 5 to 13. The preservation of nature and the use of recycling in creating art is the exhibition's focus. Materials commonly used in dump sites and recycling centers were transformed into pieces of art.
The GBT Academy of the Arts equips area youth with the character values of leadership, respect, discipline, perseverance and teamwork through diverse forms of artistic expression that develops the whole individual, transitioning them through the performing stage to the stage of life.
