ART WALK: The Art of Movement

When many of our visitors think of ART, they may think of paintings, drawings and sculpture. Many of them think of ART as a visual item to be hung over the mantle or displayed on the coffee table. We are pleased to focus this month’s “Student Art” exhibit on the ART of Movement. This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY show and will be full of energy and life. Don’t miss it.

His eye for detail has made him a worthy candidate for capturing the meticulous facets of a moving dancer. As a distinguished graduate of the University of Southern California and the Art Institute of California – Orange County, Elston has had the honor of photographing numerous subjects, including the USC Repertory Dance Company and USC Chamber Ballet Company. He will be exhibiting a collection of images from these groups.
