Children's Arts Festival to culminate with concert, exhibition
Four-hundred-nineteen Cape Girardeau school children in grades three through six have created art inspired by music during the past two months. Sunday, Dec. 8, the Cape Girardeau Children's Arts Festival will culminate with a concert and exhibition of some of the artwork.
The Southeast Chamber Players will present a concert at 3 p.m. at Old St. Vincent's Church, performing some of the pieces played to inspire the students. Dr. Sara Edgerton, a professor of music at Southeast Missouri State University, will be the featured soloist.
Forty-six of the pieces of art created for the festival will be displayed at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri galleries at 119 Independence St.
A reception for the young artists will begin at 5 p.m. Sunday. They will sign copies of the free book that has been produced in conjunction with the festival. The show will remain on display through December.
The art was judged by Southeast Missouri State University art professor Dr. Edwin Smith, Arts Council president Dr. Robert Gifford and Chelsea Bowerman, assistant to the director of the Arts Council.
Both the concert and the art exhibition are free and open to the public.
