Area schools are invited to participate in ASU’s “Through a Child’s Eyes XXVII”


JONESBORO, Ark. — Glimpse the world through a child’s eyes at this popular exhibition of juried artwork by children in the community.

The Arkansas State University Museum will open Through a Child’s Eyes XXVII on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 1 p.m. with a presentation of awards in the museum lobby. The museum is located at 320 University Loop West Circle, in the west wing of the Dean B. Ellis Library. This is a free event and the artists, their families, teachers, and the public are invited to attend.

Schools both public and private within 60 miles of Jonesboro are invited to submit 10 works of art created by children aged four through grade 8.  Artwork by homeschoolers may be submitted by their parents.  Submission dates are March 4- 9.

Since schools are limited to 10 entries only, every artwork submitted is already a winner.  Awards will be given to works of art that are chosen by a panel of judges.  First place, second place, and third place ribbons will be award to each grade level.  An overall winner will receive the coveted Charlott Jones Best in Show Award.  

The ASU Museum’s Acquisition Committee will select some art pieces for $50 purchase from young artists who have made their works eligible for acquisition.
