Rising Stars at the Marin Center

Rising Stars the 25th Annual Marin County High School Art Show has traveled to the Marin Center Exhibition Hall!

Thanks to Charlie Barboni, Libby Garrison and all the Marin Center staff for re-installing the show so beautifully. Artists and families can visit during 9-to-5 weekday hours or come to one of Marin Center’s Showcase Theater events to see the exhibit in the lobby space of the theater.

You might especially want to catch the “Best of the IJ Lobby Lounge” performance on Friday, April 22, featuring teens from around Marin, including Youth in Arts own `Til Dawn A Cappella. Great teen visual art and performing art in one night–what could be better?!

Rising Stars will continue at the Marin Center through the end of May. Students should pick up art June 2-3 OR if you want to enter your piece in the Marin County Fair, you can do that in the same space where the exhibit is located during open hours.

Here are a few photos, but we really hope you’ll go see the show in person! Congratulations to all the exhibiting students!
