Through Sunday, May 3
Figge Art Museum, 225 West Second Street, Davenport IA
Always an eagerly awaited series at the Figge Art Museum, the continuing Young Artists at the Figge exhibition, running through May 3, finds the Davenport venue again celebrating the accomplishments of budding creative talents of local elementary art students, their works on display in eight individual exhibits accompanying Recognition Days.
For the 2020 installment of Young Artists at the Figge, eight area school districts will be represented throughout the winter and spring, including the schools of Geneseo, Bettendorf, North Scott, Pleasant Valley, Moline, Muscatine, Davenport, and Rock Island/Milan. “Young Artists at the Figge puts a spotlight on all of the local talent in the area elementary schools,” says Figge Director of Education Melissa Mohr. “It provides budding artists with the opportunity to showcase their work in an art museum.” Each school district will also have a recognition day for students, and thanks to museum and donor support, admission for recognition days is free for student artists, teachers, family members, and friends.
Museum hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m, and entrance to all of the Young Artists at the Figge exhibitions is free with $4-10 general admission.
