MassMu to feature art from the Boys and Girls Club

"Mountains" by Luca, age 9, watercolor.


The Massillon Museum invites the public to view the exhibition, "Artwork by Members of the Boys and Girls Club of Massillon," from Oct. 10 through Jan. 10. The exhibition in the museum’s Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery may be seen Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 2-5 p.m.

The exhibition is intended to showcase the children’s artwork, to reward creativity and to raise awareness for the work of the Boys and Girls Club of Massillon.

This show will be broken up into three age groups with artwork in categories such as watercolor, pastel, acrylic paint, collage, mixed media, monochromatic, multi-colored drawing and group project.

The winners will receive public recognition during a Facebook Live event. A ribbon will be placed next to their artwork, and an art kit prize will be awarded to each. All members with pieces on display will have the opportunity to pick up a participation certificate at the Boys and Girls Club.

The Boys and Girls Club of Massillon, which serves more than 900 children age 6-18, focuses on academic success, good character, citizenship and healthy lifestyles. The Massillon Museum collaborates annually with the Boys and Girls Club to enhance the cultural life of the community.

In addition to viewing the Boys and Girls Club exhibition, visitors can see "Eileen Woods: Last Words" in Studio M (through Oct. 31); the "Stark County Artists Exhibition" in the Aultman Health Foundation Gallery; "Paul Brown’s Pro Teams: A History of the Browns and the Bengals," "Massillon’s Gridirons," and the Paul Brown and Massillon Tiger timeline in the Paul Brown Museum; the "Immel Circus;" and exhibitions in the Local History Gallery, Albert E. Hise Fine and Decorative Arts Gallery, and the Photography Gallery.

The Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery focuses on two-dimensional artwork reflecting collaborations between the Massillon Museum and community partners.

The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark, as well as marketing support from Visit Canton.
