Since we couldn’t host our annual spring Youth Arts Initiative showcase at the Paramount this year, we decided to do our best to create a virtual Youth Arts Initiative showcase! Please set aside 20 minutes to watch highlights of Boys & Girls Club’s Youth Arts Initiative programming over the past school year through this summer. You’ll enjoy both finished and in-progress dances, visual arts, interior design projects, fashion and sewing projects and even a vocal performance highlighted at our virtual Summer Benefit.
Special thanks go to our artist mentors, who have become even more creative to reach youth they can’t see in person during the pandemic; to our many arts supporters who continue to make these high quality arts programs possible for our youth, and to the youth themselves for their willingness to try something new and express themselves through the arts. Thank you all!
Special thanks also to Central Minnesota Arts Board, Central Minnesota Community Foundation’s Art Fund and Mardag Foundation, for providing grants to support this project.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Central MN Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
