Orinda Arts Ambassadors
The 2019 Orinda Arts Ambassadors exhibit: March 14th through March 31st
Artist Reception: Wednesday, March 20th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
Since 2007, the Arts Ambassadors Exhibit & Reception has been held every spring at the Orinda Community Library Art Gallery. Curated by the Orinda Public School Visual Art Teachers and presented in partnership with Educational Foundation of Orinda (EFO), the exhibit highlights a collection of student art work that includes at least one piece from every OUSD art studio (grades 1-8), and some from Miramonte students as well. The reception also celebrates student performing artists by featuring performances by the OUSD and Miramonte Performing Arts Programs.
The exhibit is a wonderful way to provide the public an overview of the OUSD and Miramonte Visual Arts Program and to promote the value of including arts education as a part of the general curriculum. It's also an exciting and special opportunity for the students along with their families to share their artistry in a professional gallery.
In partnership with the Educational Foundation of Orinda (EFO), which funds Orinda public school art teachers and programs, the Lamorinda Arts Council supports this event by donating and facilitating use of the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library by EFO, which we curate on a monthly basis.
