Evening Events for Youth
An important part of our youth arts programming is celebrating the achievements of our young artists. Almost every arts exhibition at MCG showcases student artwork. In order for the students’ creative successes to be celebrated by family, friends, teachers and the community, we host art receptions that are free and open to the public.
The Connie Kerr Gallery is home to our exhibitions. This warm, inviting space features professionally framed, lit and displayed artwork. We also teach our students to price their pieces if they want. Seeing their artwork for sale in a professional environment encourages students to dream bigger and, through the display and pruchase of their artwork, realize their own value.
Right next to the gallery is the MCG Jazz Concert Hall. This hall is used for awards ceremonies associated with some of our exhibitions – the Accomplishment and MCG Invitational are just two that utilize this space.
