There is an annual event in Duluth dedicated specifically to funding the visual arts in Duluth Public Schools "Because Visual Literacy is CORE." Art for Ed(ucation)'s Sake is this Friday, September 23 at 6:30 pm with art, music, and a big silent auction. It all happens at Zeitgeist Arts, 222 East Superior St. in downtown Duluth. Organizer and art teacher Chrissy Valento joins us on Radio Gallery this week to talk about the event and share the importance of art education in the lives of all people.
Allison Aune, professor of Art Education at UMD, meets with Radio Gallery to discuss the first ever Art Ed Alumni Exhibition, Faces of Earth, presented by The Magic Smelt branch of the Pineapple Arts Center.
