The 44th year of art program for students

Students from school divisions within Lethbridge submitted works of art last year as a part of “Art’s Alive and Well In Our Homes!” This year, the program is called “Virtually Installed: Lethbridge Schools. Students. Art.” It will be moved to an online setting. Kathy Knelsen is the Art Show Coordinator, and she says the beautiful artwork from last year is featured on the construction fencing around the Nikka Yuko cultural facility.

Knelsen says that she’s had phone calls and emails of support for the art showcase, “It’s been so supportive and thrilling to be able to see all this. The artwork in the park as they go for walks, and to see the artwork online. We’ve got so many responses this year for art, it’s been great.”

Students from the Lethbridge School Division, Holy Spirit Catholic School Division, and École La Verendrye will take part this year.

Other partners include the Southern Alberta Art Gallery who will have a virtual tour on their website. The Allied Arts Council will also be joining forces with the University of Lethbridge to highlight the showcase.
