Join us for a day-long exhibition opening and party celebrating the creations of more than 1,000 exhibiting K–12 artists from thirteen schools across the greater Roaring Fork Valley, Colorado.
The ambitious Youth Art Expo features two museum floors of narrative objects created by students, video documentation of their creative process in the classroom, and the support and mentorship of the puppetry collectives Poncili Creación and MAPS.
The Puppets-Pancakes-Pajamas Opening Celebration invites participating artists to attend in their favorite pajamas or their own individual style.
