Tuesday, May 14, 2002 -- Bobbitt Visual Arts Center, Albion College
Fifty-five young artists were honored this evening in a ceremony conducted by the Arts Advisory Committee of the Albion Community Foundation. Artwork created by these fifty-five students was matted, framed, and displayed in a group collection at the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center Art Gallery, and viewed by over 100 Albion residents, including the artists, their families, friends, and the Arts Advisory Committee. A public recognition of the artist followed the public viewing of the collection. The work ranged from abstract collages, to near photo realism, from line art, to standing sculptures. Students from all Albion Schools, including St. Johns School participated in the event.
The work will be displayed for one year in the following locations:
Albion City Hall, Albion Community Foundation, Albion Public Library, Albion Volunteer Service Organization, Charlies Snyder Building, Cherry Hill Urgent Care, EDC and DDA, Homestead Savings Bank, Sheridan Township Hall.

Background information on "Art in Public Places" and the Arts Advisory Committee
In February 1988 the Foundation established the Community Arts Advisory Committee, organized to promote and support the arts in the greater Albion Community through the sponsorship of public performances and exhibitions by performing and visual artists. At that time, $10,000 was placed in a special Community Arts Fund by ACF.
