Kuumba Academy Art Exhibition - Save the Date

5:30 - 8:00 pm
Please join us for Kuumba Academy Art Exhibit and Showcase on Friday, May 3rd at the Chris White Gallery.  This celebration marks another successful year of partnership between Kuumba Academy and the Delaware Art Museum. Since the fall, students in grades K-6 have routinely visited the Museum to enhance their visual arts education with hands on experience and local connections. During this time, every student in the school has been through the galleries and created art at the Museum.

This First Friday Exhibit will mark the end of a wonderful year with artwork, and fun! The Gallery will be free and open to the public from 5:30-8:00 p.m.  The Chris White Gallery is located behind the Christina Cultural Arts Center at 701 N. Shipley St.
