March 31 - April 8, 2023
Opening Reception March 31, 6-8pm
Brand Library & Art Center is pleased to announce the opening reception of the 2nd Annual Brand Classroom Showcase of Glendale Unified School District, 2022-2023 on Friday, March 31, from 6-8pm.
Each year the Annual Brand Classroom Showcase of Glendale Unified School District (ABCS of GUSD) features artwork in a wide range of media by upper-level students from the five public high schools in Glendale. Photography, painting, ceramics, sculpture, video and installation art are represented in this exciting exhibition that provides students with a public platform for their voices and their art.
The Annual Brand Classroom Showcase is the culminating event in a larger program that provides Glendale high school students the opportunity to learn directly from local art professionals. Each year students are invited to Brand Library & Art Center for a full day of interactive, hands-on learning. The students receive instruction on the proper handing and installation of artwork, curation, presentation, and marketing. Past guest educators have been from Disney Archives, The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. This year we welcome Matt Ohm, Lead Preparator at the Autry Museum of The American West, and Erin Stone, Co-Director of 11:11 Projects. Educators will provide the students with best practices for handling and installing artwork, as well as practical lessons on supporting their art practice while pursuing an arts career and insights on marketing their artwork and communicating with galleries.
The 2nd Annual Brand Showcase will be on view March 31 - April 8, 2023. Join us for the free, public opening reception on Friday, March 31, 6-8pm. Musical performances by students from Glendale High School will take place throughout the evening and refreshments will be served.
