Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Many artists have long tried to recapture the wonder and freedom of expression of their childhood only to find it a never-ending battle to discard the rules of nature and art. Youth are not bound by those rules yet learned, and let their imaginations sore. Through the Creative Expressions Youth Exhibit, SMAC examines the uninhibited artistry of youth and celebrates childhood play and creativity. Come view the world through the art of area youth—a world filled with wonder and infinite possibilities.
Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC), a 501C3 non-profit local center of creativity, art education, innovation, and community partnership, strives to improve the quality of life in southern Missouri by connecting individuals with the arts, for the benefit of all.
