ARTING About...? Crocker Art Museum "The Takeover: An Art Jam by and for Youth."

When I was in seventh grade I came upon a teacher named Ms. Betty.  She took our after-school drama club--which met in the foyer of the auditorium convening underneath the overhang of a large stairway leading to the second floor balcony--to see Godspell at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston. We sat in the very last row of seats far in the back of the balcony.

Life Changing Experience?

Yet, that mattered not.  When I walked out of that theater two plus hours later, my life had been-- and still is-- altered permanently.   Art is potent.  It can change lives.

The Crocker Art Museum held an event, 5pm to 9pm, this past-Thursday, August 1, 2013 called "The Takeover: An Art Jam By & for Youth."  And that is exactly what happened.
