UNT on the Square joins Denton school district today to promote community support of art education. The school district and the University of North Texas’ downtown art gallery and performance space open an exhibition of artwork from students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
This free exhibition is the first time Denton schools and UNT on the Square have worked together to showcase the art of students from the district. Art teachers have chosen works from students in schools throughout the district to be displayed today through June 7 at UNT on the Square, which also serves as the headquarters of UNT’s Institute for the Advancement of the Arts
“We are excited to collaborate with the school district and support the efforts of these young artists,” UNT on the Square Director Herbert Holl said in a news release. “We invite the community to stop by the gallery and see this exhibition.”
There will be an opening reception with light refreshments from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at UNT on the Square, 109 N. Elm St. The reception is open to the public.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Thursdays; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call the gallery at 940-369-8257.
