Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) is pleased to present Emerging Visions: ROOTS in celebration of Youth Art Month. This highly popular annual exhibition showcases young artists in the community by giving them the experience and recognition of exhibiting their work in a professional gallery setting. In 2008, Emerging Visions: Adolescent Self Portraiture, marked the art center’s first thematic youth art show. This year’s exhibition inaugurates several more innovative concepts.
Emerging Visions: ROOTS also brings important recognition to Fairfax County’s excellent art teachers, their programs, and the schools and communities that support them.
This project is supported in part by funds from the Arts Council of Fairfax County with funds from the County of Fairfax. This project is sponsored by Initiative for Public Art Reston (IPAR)
