Schnitzer shows works by local residents

"ArtReach," a new installation at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, showcases work developed through the museum's Education Department staff and created by community members participating in museum programs.

Located in the museum's Education Corridor Galleries, "ArtReach" is on view through Feb. 10.

"ArtReach" features work by students from Jasper Mountain, adults from Holly Residential Treatment Center and adults from Specialized Access.

Nori Rice, a Eugene native and recent graduate from the University of British Columbia, facilitated many of the art lessons.

Also included in the exhibition is work created by children who participated in the museum's active summer camp series, taught by museum educator Lauren Suveges.
