Verdigris Valley
Young Artist Exhibit

April 17, 2015

The Independence Historical Museum and Art Center held the 2nd Annual Verdigris Valley Young Artist Exhibit in 2015. This gives our young aspiring artists in Kindergarten through the 12th grade to have an art show of their own! We want to encourage visual art education and promote artistic creativity and expression. We believe it is important to provide an opportunity to recognize and exhibit outstanding student artwork. We hope to cultivate a sense of accomplishment and pride in our young artists from seeing their own work on exhibit and, at the same time, have the opportunity to view the work of other young artists.
