a group exhibit featuring grown-up recreations of kids’ drawings

Art Imitates Art is an exhibit in which children, 14 years of age or younger, submitted drawings to be re-created by adult artists, using the same shapes and composition, into a piece of fine art. Both the child’s drawing and adult’s art piece will be displayed together and are available for purchase.
