YV students’ art on exhibit at Brooks Museum of Art in Memphis

April 1, 2010

The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art displays a wide variety of art – famous paintings, sculptures, African art, fashion dating back a hundred years and more. Recently, the museum celebrated the opening of a unique exhibit to show off art created by boys and girls receiving help on the Youth Villages Bartlett Campus.

As part of a therapeutic art program organized by art teachers working at the museum, Youth Villages students made colorful masks, painted their faces on a large canvas, came up with cartoon strips illustrating what their lives will look like after they leave Youth Villages and used printed books to rewrite chapters of their own lives.
