“Herb’s Choice: The Duke Ellington School of the Arts”
Opening: Friday, October 14th from 7-9 PM
DC Arts Center resides in a facility that is donated rent-free by arts supporter and avid collector, Herb White. Now retired and living in Miami , FL , each year Mr. White chooses a DC artist and offers an exhibition of their work. This year he has chosen to feature the work of visual arts students from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts. The exhibited work will be a selection from their annual Spring Exhibition from 2004 – 05 which initially featured 296 pieces of art. The work will represent three levels of the department’s curriculum, 9 th, 10 th, and 11 th grades. It will showcase the enrichment and experiences of various techniques, processes and mediums while exploring a variety of subject matter. The work also represents a focus in developing excellence in craftsmanship and compositional skills as well as individual creative thinking skills.
