Neighborhood Connections Funds Westside Community Youth Art Show
Friday, November 15, 2013
The Westside Community Youth Art Show began in 2005 when a few neighborhood art teachers wanted to celebrate their students art work and support arts and culture in the Detroit/Shoreway Neighborhood. A main goal was gathering students, teachers and families from many schools with showcasing art and creativity as the goal. The 2012 show schools included:
Metro Catholic School
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School
Thomas Jefferson School
Urban Community School
Waverly Valley View School
The event was first sponsored by the Ward 17 Forum and Councilman Matt Zone. The show takes place in a public location so all school communities are equal participants. Each school contributes 25-30 entries. Art teachers from participating schools organize and market the show.
The show participants and volunteers have grown each year. The organizing group has developed its own logo and marketing plan.
