10X10 Exhibit: Voice opening reception
February 17 at 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Arts Every Day is proud to present its fifth annual 10×10 Exhibit, featuring over 130 works of art created by Baltimore City Public School students and teachers in response to a culturally relevant body of work, movement, or theme. Each year, the 10×10 Exhibit offers students and teachers a platform to use visual art as a tool for exploring complex ideas and perceptions.
Arts Every Day partnered with UMBC’s Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (CADVC) through a generous grant from the Charlesmead Foundation to celebrate and elevate voices of Baltimore City students and teachers, engage students in conversation, reflection, & creation inspired by Southern Rites (available virtually through the CADVC’s website) and connect students to the impactful work of the CADVC. Arts Every Day also partnered with the Enoch Pratt Free Library and the One Book Baltimore Program to offer teachers and students access to programming and resources related to 2020’s selection: We Speak For Ourselves by D. Watkins.
The theme for the 2021 10X10 Exhibit is VOICE. With so much going on in the world today, the need to listen to the voices of our youth are so paramount, especially because the decisions we make today will impact the world our children will grow up in tomorrow. For this exhibit, we invited students and teachers in Baltimore City Public Schools to think about ways art, in its many forms can be used to inform, create discourse, and further understanding. This call for art encouraged students to use whatever creative outlet suited their intended message or their call to action.
