Prairie, Corinth students get taste of art world with Crossroads show

Patrons at the First Fridays gathering in the Crossroads district earlier this month may have noticed a young energy to the art displayed at Centric Projects.

Owners Courntey Kounkel, Steve Swanson and Richard Wetzel opened up their space to host a real-life art show for 40 young art students from Prairie and Corinth. With the help of art teachers Sharon Sloan (Prairie) and Kim Bogart (Corinth), the students each got to display one or two pieces of their art. Around 200 patrons — parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles among them — attended the show.

The event also featured a bounce house. Which is, like, you know, performance art.

Proceeds from the event went to benefit the schools.
