MCC-Longview Fine Arts Challenge 2011


[instrumental music] Hi, I’m Dan Reneau, the
gallery director and curator of the Cultural Arts Center
at Longview. And, uh, right now we have
the Lee’s Summit Fine Arts
Challenge, actually the second annual. One of the great things about
this exhibit is that it fulfills one of our visions, our-our
goals for the, uh, campus. Number one that we’d be a
college that facilitates the
needs and, uh, and, uh, hopes of our campus
but also our community. And with that said this exhibit
showcases three different
schools: Lees Summit West,
Lee’s Summit North,
and Lee’s Summit. And these are the pieces that
David Harrison from the Kansas City Art
Institute, our juror this year,
selected. [instrumental music] This is a really good
opportunity for students, high school students,
to see their work in a gallery. It changes their perspective,
uh, for what they can expect
their work to be in the future. I think a lot of times we have
wrong ideas as to what we can become or what
we are supposed to become. I think an artist, per se,
is something that our culture might not push or say it’s
acceptable but this gallery
really gives an opportunity for students to express
themselves in a really creative
way. [instrumental music]
