Art Curator Discusses Children's Exhibit

Jun 24, 2015

This water color painting of Elton John is featured in the Art for ALL Juried Children's Exhibit at the Clay Center in Charleston.

This is the time of year when the city of Charleston becomes a work of art.  FestivALL runs through this week an includes concerts of all kinds of music, theater, shows, dances and, of course, art.

At the Clay Center this week is "Art for ALL: A Juried Children's Exhibit" with works from children ages pre-K to 6th grade.

When you see it, you will notice the beautiful dioramas, drawings and paintings, but also take a look at how these works are displayed.

This exhibit employs it's own curator.  We spoke with Amanda Rogers, an art history major from West Virginia University, as she prepared to go to work.
