First Run of the DIY Gallery: A Deeper Look Into the 365 Artists 365 Days Project in La Crosse, Wis.

On October 20, 365 Artists 365 Days Project founder Frank Juarez and Appleton art teacher, Elyse Lucas presented at the Wisconsin Art Education Association fall conference in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Elyse is a high school art teacher who attended last year’s presentation on this project at the WAEA conference in Appleton. Being introduced to this project resulted in her using the artist databases to inspire her students to create a series of mock up galleries using the artists’ artworks from this project. This was a great opportunity to work together and share the importance of bringing contemporary art inside the art classroom and providing her students with real life experiences. 

March 2-4, 2017 Frank and Elyse will be presenting the conclusion of this experience resulting in a student-led art exhibition at Global Arts in Manitowoc, Wisconsin (February 2017). This final presentation will take place in New York during the 2017 National Art Education Association Convention.
