The Stutz Artists Association and the Miami-based organization Just My Height Art Shows® are bringing professional-quality fine art to young children in a unique exhibit to be displayed at the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery in October. “Secret Doors” is an exhibit created especially with young children in mind. The textural, sculptural, and interactive art invite children of all ages to touch, taste, open, close, and view the artwork on display. Just My Height Art Shows are like other art exhibits, only the art is hung at a “new low” – hung at a child’s eye level (36 inches high).
“Children rarely get to see art at a comfortable level for them, so this is truly an extraordinary opportunity,” said Leigh Dunnington-Jones, curator of “Secret Doors,” October’s exhibit at the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery. “The experience of this exhibit offers children and adults the opportunity to really look at art in more than a casual way, and to explore the art together. We will have interactive pieces, an installation built from actual vintage doors donated by local businesses, a video piece, sculptures and so much more.”
The kid-friendly opening reception is Friday, Oct. 7, 5-9 pm, at the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery during a kid-friendly, family fun opening reception of “Secret Doors.” The free event features art, games, hands-on activities, a scavenger hunt through the Gallery, kid snacks and live music.
This opening event is a part of the IDADA First Friday Art Tour. The exhibit is in partnership with Just My Height Art Shows and made possible, in part, with support from the Penrod Society.
