Art by Montgomery elementary students to be featured in exhibit

Posted: Wednesday, 30 March 2011

MONTGOMERY—Artwork created by students at a Montgomery elementary school during a series of workshops organized by Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum will be featured in an exhibit starting April 16.

The art was created by students at Highland Garden Elementary School during workshops held at the school in February by the Rosa Parks Museum and artist Ted Ellis. The students created their own versions of Ellis’ painting “Every Man.”

The artwork created during those workshops will be displayed at the Coliseum Boulevard Public Library from April 16 through April 30 in an exhibit titled “The Colors Within Me.” An opening reception will be held at the library on April 16 at 11 a.m.

The Ted Ellis workshops were sponsored by Target, who provided art supplies and volunteers.

“The workshops were tremendously successful and a wonderful way to close Ted Ellis’ exhibit at the Rosa Parks Museum,” said Viola Moten, museum curator.
