Rapides Parish Talented Visual Art students got a real treat last month when their artwork was housed next to pieces by the famous Pablo Picasso at the Alexandria Museum of Art.

A juried exhibition was on display from April 26-May 18 featuring the work of Brooke Adams, Max Abrams, Amelia Beebe, Pearce Beebe, Cameron Blanchard, Kirah Bond, Abbie Cooper, Bailey Craven, Viviana Dauzat, Kylie Dyer, Emily Foy, Madeline Gaspard, Stella Grassi, Charlie Hernandez, Alli Howard, Ava Howard, Katey Jackson, Larson Lea, Kenzie Lewis, Ashton Lindley, Allie McCoy, Meleya McGothlin, Maci Melder, Madelyn Milstead, Chloe Moran, Parker Newcomb, J.L. Nichols, Eden O’Neal, Madeline Ortego, Livia Owens, Gisele Prejean, Mehki Polk, De’Jay Reed, Isabella Rivera, Emily Schrock, Hannah Smith, Aniston Stalsby, Jessa Starlett, Jasper Strother, Alyssa Talley, Ryleigh Temple, Ada West, Shiloh Willson, Emma Windsor, Nevaeh White, and Dani Yancey.

Madilyn Anderson, Collections Manager and Preparator, noted the importance of highlighting student work. “For some it is their first gallery showing and hopefully it will inspire them to continue. Think how amazing it is to be featured next to Picasso.”

Enduring Concepts: A Graphic Journey (prints by Pablo Picasso) from the Landau Traveling Exhibitions is a big get for Central Louisiana and should not be missed. It will be featured at the AMoA until June 15 when a new community will have the honor of hosting it.

Museum hours are Tuesday-Friday 10a-5p and Saturday 10a-4p. For more information call 318.443.3458 or visit themuseum.org.
