Director’s Column: Individuality and Inspiration for Bowen's Talented Young Artists
I am writing this post as I head down to New York City on the train. One of the things I plan to do while I’m there is visit the Warhol Exhibit at the Whitney Museum. When I was in college, I briefly interned at Interview Magazine, where the walls were covered with his colorful pop art. I always felt they were the perfect backdrop to the high energy, creative atmosphere of the offices.
Speaking of museums, the MFA came in this week to introduce us to the multi-sensory world of art. The children were shown a print of Monet’s Water Lilies, then, they split into small groups to create their own felt water lily tableaux. Each child had his or her own vision, which is one of the things I love about art. There is no right or wrong way to create, and each piece is unique to the person who created it.
We have some beautiful pieces of art, showcasing the work of our talented young artists, that will be up for auction at next week’s Spring Fling. I am very excited about what they have created! We can’t wait to unveil them next week in the big room and give you a sneak peek before the big night. You will not be disappointed!
