About the Event
The display will include inspiring art created in a range of media accompanied by insightful quotations selected by, or written by each young artist. The submissions, which were received from students in grades K-12, were displayed virtually in the spring of 2020 on the BlackRock website so they could be shared with the community. We are thrilled to finally have the opportunity to shine the gallery spotlights on the talented young artists who participated in this special project as we reopen our galleries on September 18.
The full collection of 156 Quotable Quarantine student artworks, and accompanying quotes, have also been published into a beautiful 164-page professionally printed art book, where each student has their own page with a full-color image of the artwork is printed on thick coated paper. The beautiful keepsake catalog has a glossy cover and is bound to a size of 8.5 x 8.5 inches. This limited-edition book is available for purchase online at the link below. Book orders can be picked up at BlackRock, or shipping can be arranged for an additional fee.
