Young people in Greater Boston come from 140 countries around the world! To celebrate our incredible diversity and our collective cultural heritage, OneWorld Classrooms will launch a new art exhibit in June, 2013 called Boston 140. The exhibit will feature artwork created by Boston-area AND global K-12 students that reflects their lives and cultures. It will be FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and displayed at various sites in the Boston area, including the Margarita Muñiz Academy, the Boston Children’s Hospital, the Vine Street Community Center and at a Boston Children’s Chorus concert. A full list of venues and dates will be announced.
Visit our Boston 140 Blog for updates on the development of the exhibit, photos of participating students and their artwork, fun stories and teacher feedback.
