Campus Middle School hosts Mobile Art Gallery
The Campus Middle School community was treated to an evening of outstanding art and music on March 20 when the school hosted the Cherry Creek Arts Festival Mobile Art Gallery II.  Talented orchestra students performed classical music in the cafeteria, while student docents led guests through a gallery in the commons that featured 30 pieces of original works of art from the CCAF’s exhibiting artists.

“It was enjoying the perfect marriage of visual and auditory entertainment,” said parent Kim Kramer, who toured the exhibit with her daughter Hannah, after the eighth-grader’s performance on the viola.  “I love all the artistic opportunities that are available in the district.”

The exhibit, which included ceramics, digital art, drawings, jewelry, metalworks, photography and sculpture, was at Campus from March 15-25, giving students plenty of opportunities to enjoy the artwork.

“The kids will stop, walk around, look at the art,” said art teacher Anna Mills. “We saw surprising interest from students you might not expect. One boy jumped up with joy and said “This is an exciting thing!””

Campus students including Abbey Wegner and Jessica Wolfson volunteered to serve as docents for the exhibit. They received two hours of training about the pieces and the artists who created them.

“I love art,” said Wegner, “so learning about each artist and the stories behind their work was really interesting.”

“I’m an artist myself,” said Wolfson, whose favorite medium is colored pencils. “I loved learning about the art and the different techniques each artist used.”

The CCAF Moblie Art Gallery II is funded through a grant from the Scientific and Cultural Collaborative (SCC), a non-profit organization comprised of arts, science and cultural organizations that are part of the metro area’s Scientific and Cultural Facility District (SCFD).  A group of teachers from Campus and Belleview Elementary applied for the grant, which also provides other cultural activities throughout the year.
