{EXHIBIT & RECEPTION}

What do middle school, Occupy, ice cream and street art have in common? Twelve-year-old Elias Duchowny, that's what! Elias grabbed our attention with his truly inspired first art show at Tara's Organic Ice Cream in North Oakland. This fall, the Main Library TeenZone is happy to host Elias' first institutional exhibit, showcasing new large-format works inspired by the Bay Area's vibrant street art scene, the recent upswell of class conscious activism through the Occupy movement, and life in the East Bay. Come out for an opening reception on September 22 at 3pm, with live art demos by local artists and hands-on activities for all ages led by Rock Paper Scissors. As Elias put it, "I go to a school without any art classes for kids my age. My school district doesn’t think that art is a priority. I do.” Here, at the library, we agree. Join Elias as we make (and appreciate) some art together.
