Hancher Guild will host March 3 reception for Children’s Art Exhibition in Hancher lobby

Hancher Guild will host a free public reception for the 20th annual Children’s Art Exhibit from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, March 3 in the lobby of the University of Iowa Hancher Auditorium.

The March 3 reception will include free refreshments and performances by students at the Preucil School of Music, the Nolte Dance Studio, Willowwind School and Southeast Junior High.

The exhibit, which features visual art works created by children in each elementary school in the Iowa City Community School District, will be on display in the Hancher lobby through March 13. The works were selected and displayed by the students’ art teachers.

The exhibit is accessible not only to audience members at events in Hancher, but also during the regular hours of the Hancher Showcase gift shop, 10:30 a.m. through 1:30 p.m. each Wednesday.
