Please join us for the Bo Bartlett Center's Annual Outreach Exhibition Opening!

TUESDAY, APRIL 3, 2018

EXHIBITION OPENING: 5:00 - 6:30 PM, BO BARTLETT CENTER
RECEPTION: 6:30 PM, RUTH BROOKS YANCEY TERRACE
LECTURE: 7:30 PM, BAY GALLERY

The lecture will feature a presentation, Collecting Art, by New York-Based Art Dealer and Art Appraiser, Betty Krulik.

The Annual Outreach Exhibition features artwork by participants from Home Is Where The Art Is, Art Makes You Smart, and other Bo Bartlett Center outreach programs of Columbus, Georgia. Artwork created by participants of Home Is The Art Is will be available for purchase and will be donation based (only cash and check will be accepted at this event. We are sorry for any inconvenience).

Refreshments will be provided during the event.

Home Is Where The Art Is provides a safe and positive environment for individuals in the homeless community to create their own unique pieces of art. The program is a collaboration with the Chattahoochee Valley Jail Ministries, Safe-House at Rose Hill United Methodist Church and the Bo Bartlett Center.

Art Makes You Smart program takes art and artists into select Muscogee County Schools teaching the basic principals of art. Inspired by the 2013 study by University of Arkansas social scientists Jay P. Greene, Brian Kisida and Daniel H. Bowen, the program’s goal is to foster critical thinking, encourage human empathy and inspire creativity.
