CHCCS to hold Art History Timeline

Students in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools have been drawing and painting remembrances of the school district’s 100-year history in anticipation of the Centennial Art History Timeline.  The art show will open to the public on Wednesday, November 5, from 6-8 pm at Lincoln Center .

Guests will enter Lincoln Center and discover a “time warp” that will transport them back in time.  They will then view works of art in chronological order that were created by students in the district’s schools and after-school programs.  Events to be depicted include the opening of the district's 17 schools, various developments in school desegregation and a fire that destroyed Chapel Hill High School in 1942.

In addition to the visual art, students from the district’s drama and music programs also will be on hand.  Drama students will transform themselves into characters from the district history in a “wax museum” format to greet guests.  Students from music combos at the district’s three high schools will perform in the Boardroom, where refreshments will be served.  The district’s Centennial Video will play in the Superintendent’s Conference Room, and displays of books for the upcoming Centennial Book Chat will be available for review.


The event is being produced by Arts Coordinator Theresa Grywalski and the Centennial Planning Committee.  The show is free and open to the public.
