The Arts Council of SE Missouri has some very special pieces on display this Friday through the 23rd! A reception for artists from twenty-one local schools in 3rd to 8th grade is being held on the 1st from 4 to 8pm. Executive Director Murielle Gaither tells KZIM KSIM the 13th annual Children’s Arts Festival has taken on different forms each year and this one will not fail to please! There are over 4-hundred pieces of art in the gallery space and the council is holding workshops for the kids in an all month long blow out event! Last year over a thousand people shattered the attendance record for a first Friday event!  Gaither hopes to do that again! The reception has food catered by Chick-Fil-A and other area restaurants. It is MONUMENTAL for the kids who turn it into a full family affair!
