HOME: Ben Vitualla and Millersville Elementary at Blend
Where the Art Is
By Joe Nolan
The Arcade art venues and the other Fifth Avenue galleries threw Nashville’s art community–not to mention Nashville’s art writers–a curveball this week, moving the First Saturday Art Crawl to July 11 to avoid the July 4 pyromania. With that in mind, we’re saving up our downtown picks for next week…with one exception. Take a peek at the HOME exhibit at Blend Studio at 79 Arcade. The gallery’s inaugural exhibit features a collaboration between the always inventive Ben C. Vitualla and teacher Lyn Miller’s fifth-grade class at Millersville Elementary. True to the show’s title, the young artists follow Vitualla’s lead, utilizing photography, collage, paintings and video to explore–and express–what “home” means to them.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 6. Continues through July 19, 2009
