MassMu to Host Annual Artwork by Members of the Boys and Girls Club of Massillon
The Massillon Museum invites the community to view Artwork by Members of the Boys and Girls Club of Massillon from September 17 through November 2, 2022, in the Museum’s Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery. The annual exhibition showcases the children’s artwork, rewards creativity, and raises awareness for the work of the Boys and Girls Club of Massillon.
This show will be divided into three age groups and several categories: watercolor, pastel, acrylic paint, collage, mixed media, monochromatic, multi-colored drawing, and group projects. Each winner will be recognized with a prize and a ribbon next to the exhibited artwork. Each student with artwork in the show will receive a certificate.
The Boys and Girls Club of Massillon, which serves hundreds of children ages six through 18, helps young people thrive by focusing on academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. The Massillon Museum is pleased to collaborate with the organization to enhance the cultural life of the community.
MassMu guests can also view Missing History of Massillon: Unheard African American Stories; Daric M. Gill: The Absolutes (through September 21); Barrie Kaufman: A Fragile Environment (October 1 through November 30); “Carry On”: A Century of Swing in the Paul Brown Museum; and Collection Snapshot: Faces of Massillon Business. The Paul Brown/Massillon Tiger Football History Timeline, the Massillon History Gallery, the Immel Circus, Innovators of Massillon, and the Albert E. Hise Fine and Decorative Arts Gallery are always on display. A 1916 Massillon-manufactured Russell steam engine can be seen in the garden on the east side of the building.
The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark. This exhibition is among many initiatives supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Massillon Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. It extends its hours to 7:00 p.m. on the last Saturday of each month in collaboration with Massillon’s Last Saturday event.
