Liberty Art Shows open May 20

In its first ever full district opening, all three Liberty schools will join in one event with the Elementary and Middle School Art show hosted by the Liberty Library at 189 North Main Street and the annual Liberty High School show hosted by the Liberty Museum at 46 South Main Street.

The school district’s campaign “Taking Art to the Streets” will be highlighted by National Art Honor Students escorting groups to each exhibit on Main Street and will include local artists and the opening of the Left Bank Gallery to make the night an arts event for all!

Beginning at 5 p.m., students from Liberty’s National Art Honor Society will escort groups in an Art Walk along Main Street, where many exhibits will be on display.

A fun tradition, the Art Walk process is simple — proceed at your own pace, stop at artwork that captures your fancy, stroll around main street that is peppered with photographs, paintings, sculptures and more.

Art Walk participants will be given a passport. As the walk begins, participants will be encouraged to fill out their passports in order to enter a raffle.

Be prepared to be surprised by the wide array of artistic styles that are represented by Liberty students, from traditional to contemporary, from still life to impressionism and more.

Award winning cake artist Kim Simons and sculptor and metalworking phenom Zac Shaverick will be in front of their work at the Liberty Public Library, 189 North Main Street and outside Floyd & Bobo’s bakery, respectively.
The Ron Lusker gallery will be open at The Left Bank, 59 North Main Street.

Additionally, the LHS Art Department will unveil its the new banners that will decorate both sides of Main Street. The banners will feature student artwork and have been made possible through a grant that the department received in April from Sullivan Renaissance.
