YCSD VPA Unity Project
Fellows Riverside Gardens – Lobby
The Youngstown City School District Visual & Performing Arts Unity Project is an art exhibit featuring the collaborative efforts of VPA visual art students in grades K-12 throughout the Youngstown City School District. Joining the 2018-2019 VPA Unity project, in a very special collective community effort, are surrounding school Districts in both Mahoning and Trumbull County as well as our area universities of YSU and KSU. The project symbolizes ‘unity’ through the collaborative painting process. Each VPA painting features a collective unified vision or message by the students and features the work of each and every visual art student led by their art teacher. The paintings are accompanied by poignant quotes regarding unity provided by the students which were collected during the creative process. For further information regarding the VPA Unity Project or YCSD VPA contact Tracy Schuler Vivo; Director of Visual and Performing Arts/ VPA Coordinator at 330.744.8830 or at Tracy.Schuler-Vivo@youngstown.k12.oh.us
