STAFF SPOTLIGHT: CJHS art teachers showcase their creativity in museum exhibit

Concord Junior High School art teachers Neil Boston and Mary Amador were recently selected to participate in the Midwest Museum of American Art’s “40 on 40 Project.”

In honor of the museum’s 40th anniversary, 40 regional artists were selected to produce a 10-foot mural of a street scene in downtown Elkhart in front of the MMAA.

Each artist could choose the medium they wanted to use to produce their part of the image, with the only stipulation being that it had to be made to scale with the other artist’s work.

The artwork is on display in the Midwest Museum of American Art’s “spotlight” gallery, along with a key image that indicates all the artists who participated.

“This celebration of a community of creative minds showcases their innovative approach each in their own respective styles and media,” exhibition organizers wrote.

The exhibit opened in the middle of August and will be on display through Saturday, Sept. 28.

The museum, located at 429 S Main St., Elkhart, IN 46516, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for students.
