Winnipeg Youth to Shine at Artwork Showcase

Winnipeg Youth to Shine at Artwork Showcase

By Brian Schultz

Boys and Girls Clubs of WinnipegYouth with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg will celebrate artwork created through a year-long arts program.

Through a $20,000 Winnipeg Foundation grant, youth attended weekly arts programming in partnership with Art City and Graffiti Art Programming Inc.

“As a result, our youth have created some imaginative pieces while building on aspects of healthy development such as self-expression, accomplishment, and communication,” said Ron Brown, president and CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg.

Youth also participated in a giant game of ‘telephone,’ sending messages in the form of drawings, rap lyrics, and videos to each other. The artwork travelled across all Boys and Girls Clubs sites, creating a city-wide artistic dialogue.

The artwork will be unveiled at Graffiti Art Programming, 109 Higgins Avenue, between 6-8 p.m. tonight.
