FLINT – From April 24-26, Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy’s 11,000-square-foot atrium will be temporarily transformed into an art gallery celebrating the students in YouthQuest’s afterschool program.
The three-day ArtQuest exhibition will be open to the public and centers around the theme of “Art in Motion.” Visitors will find that the more than 1,500 pieces on display either depict motion or were created through movement. Japanese Koinobori kites will hang from the ceiling, and a selection of abstract art will show what students can accomplish by blowing paint through plastic straws.
In addition to art and enrichment activities, YouthQuest – which receives support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and 21st Century Community Learning Centers – also places emphasis on academic support, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), physical fitness, nutrition, youth development and leadership, and family and community engagement.
Admission to ArtQuest is free, although guests are encouraged to RSVP by calling 810-600-1422.
The exhibition will be open at Diplomat, at 4100 Saginaw St. in Flint, from 4-6 p.m. each day. – G.G.
