The work included in this exhibit explores the fluctuations of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. We hear the value of the index reported daily before it quickly dissolves into background noise. However, it has profund implications on all of our lives regardless of whether or not we have money in the market.

Kids ages 5-12 are invited to tour the current exhibitions and create artwork based upon their experience! Each student participating will leave with his or her own piece, created with the assistance of UCM art education students.
For this event, the children will be looking at original illustrations of the Simpsons cartoon characters by animator David Silverman.
Enrollment is open on a first come, first served basis, with the class limited to 20. There is no charge for the event.
"Our Gallery Kids events have been hugely popular," said Christian Cutler, gallery director ."We created Gallery Kids as a way to reach out to the community in an effort to bring more community members into the UCM's Gallery of Art and Design, which is a wonderful space to experience regional, national and international visual art and design."
Cutler added that gallery exhibits change every three to four weeks. In addition to Gallery Kids, the galleries will be open for visitors. Currently on display is Earth Stories and Dogs of the Dow by Chad Erpelding.

Gallery admission is free and groups are welcome.
