Student Art At Cultural Center Friday, May 7
The art made by students in the Lower Kuskokwim School District will take center stage at the Bethel Cultural Center on Friday, May 7. Up until now, all the art made by students could only be viewed virtually. The instruction that took place was also done remotely because of the pandemic. At 6 p.m. on May 7, the doors will open at the Bethel Cultural Center for a live, in person First Friday show of student art. Teddi Worrock, the cultural center's program director, said that the event will span many art forms.
“We worked together to create this beautiful wall that has art from all the students all over the Y-K Delta,” explained Worrock. We also have a dance group that will be performing. We have art from Reyne Athanas and Jamie and Katie Nicolai that will also be displayed. We also have an art station provided by the library that’s a lot of fun for kids. So if the parents want to walk around and view the art, the kids can sit down and create some art.”
The is the second First Friday event since the pandemic began. The first one took place at the cultural center last month. To keep everyone safe, people will have to wear masks, maintain social distance from each other, and sign a book to help track attendance. The event runs from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on May 7.
