Secret Doors: A "Just My Height Art Show®"
Exhibit is open October 10-28
The Stutz Artists Association Brings Fine Arts to Children in a Unique Exhibit
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.
Art will be hung at a child’s eye level. Opening reception features a scavenger hunt through the Gallery and more!
“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, smell, 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). This approach helps to capture and instill in children a love and appreciation for fine art (not "childish" or children's art) at an early age, thus helping to create and cultivate the art creators, collectors and consumers of the future.
“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 the exhibit. “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.”
This exhibition makes a perfect field trip for children at your school or in your organization!
The Stutz Artists Association is offering, for the first time, a unique field trip event for your school or children's organization. Between October 10 and 29, your students may experience the historic Stutz factory (including some of the cars made there), visit a working artist’s studio, and explore the Secret Doors exhibit. This opportunity is made possible in part by a grant from the Penrod Society.
The October exhibit will open with a kid-friendly, family fun reception on Friday, Oct. 7, 5-9 pm. The show's opening reception will feature games and hands-on activities—including an art scavenger hunt—designed to engage the children and their parents with the art, as well as live music and age appropriate snacks.
Following the opening reception, the art will be on display during Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 11am-2pm, Oct. 10-28.
