It’s back by popular demand! Mark your calendar and plan now to attend Young@ART, The Oakwood Schools Foundation’s third annual art show fundraiser that showcases the extraordinary talents of Oakwood’s students, faculty and alumni while raising important funds for The Oakwood Schools Foundation. Young@ART 2014 will be held Saturday, April 12 from 7 – 10 p.m. in the Town & Country Shopping Center’s central atrium community room.
“This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever, with an exhibition of art by Oakwood students of all ages; a working studio featuring high school artists; a spirited silent auction of original artwork by OHS alumni artists and District art faculty; food and drink; music and mingling,” said Julie Cannon, event co-chair. “Response from the hundreds who attended last year was so overwhelming that we immediately began planning for 2014.”
Tickets to Young@ART are $25 per person and available during normal business hours at The Oakwood Community Center, the Oakwood Board of Education office, and in the management office at Town & Country Shopping Center. Or, reserve yours by mail by sending a check payable to The Oakwood Schools Foundation, with Art Show on the memo line, to PO Box 351, Dayton, OH 45409.
