| February 7, 2020

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum knows that the best way to fight those dreary winter doldrums is with an explosion of color – A Playground of Color. This favorite community exhibition featuring elementary school art from Coshocton County, boasts more than 200 works of impressive expressions of talent, freshness and energy. This annual show runs March 1-29 and will also be displayed concurrently at the Coshocton and West Lafayette libraries.

Artwork for A Playground of Color is produced by students in kindergarten through sixth grade who attend elementary in Coshocton’s city and county schools as well as from Sacred Heart and home school. Works are chosen by the students’ art teachers for their creativity and excellence.

Through the various mediums of art such as acrylic, collage, yarn work, watercolor, mosaic, mixed media, pastels, crayons, and sculpture, let your spirits rise as you view this very colorful and exceptional exhibit. From all kinds of animals to fantasy creatures, self-portraits and landscapes, the viewer will enjoy how children interpret the world through the eyes of innocence and whimsy. It’s sure to brighten your mood.

The public is invited to the artists’ reception from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1. Admission is free. Enjoy the artwork and refreshments and meet some budding artists. During the opening reception students and visitors may also explore the permanent exhibit galleries.

A Playground of Color is sponsored by Dixie and Wilson Graham. The Ohio Arts Council also helped fund this event with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
