Dennos Museum Center

Traverse City, MI United States

As the closing celebration for The Big Draw – Grand Traverse, the Dennos Museum Center hosts an exhibition featuring five local artists inspired by a child’s artwork. Each artist selected one or more drawings created by a young visitor during Big Draw Day, October 4, 2014, and incorporated and recreated it in the medium of their choice while keeping the child’s original concept and line drawing in place. Children ages 4-12 created drawings in response to questions about keeping Earth clean, as part of this year’s Big Draw theme, It’s Our World. The exhibition features the artists’ interpretations, the original drawings from the children, and a digital slideshow of various drawings and events that took place as part of The Big Draw – Grand Traverse. Each child chosen for the exhibition will receive a high-resolution reproduction of the artist’s rendition.

The exhibition is supported by The Linda O’Meara Fund for Arts Education.
