KENNESAW, Ga.—Kennesaw State University will host the 2012 Georgia All-State Art Symposium Exhibition May 4-30 in the Fine Arts Gallery of the Joe Mack Wilson Building. The exhibition is sponsored and organized by the Georgia Art Education Association and will feature selected works by top high school artists from across the state.
Mary-Elizabeth Watson, KSU’s gallery manager, calls the exhibition an “opportunity for the KSU Art Museum to engage with the community at a different level. Our involvement with the symposium increases the visibility of the gallery and of the Visual Arts Department at KSU and it draws a diverse audience to campus from across the state.”
The Art Symposium and Exhibition are designed to provide cultural opportunities, develop advanced studio skills and cultivate aesthetic appreciation in Georgia high school students. Each year, approximately 200 students, along with their parents, families and teachers, are introduced to KSU and the College of the Arts through its involvement with the symposium.
