ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Students at the CASS-MIND Academy have been working hard to create something special for the community.
On Friday, June 7th, the John McIntire Library will be opening their brand new exhibit dedicated to the students. MCLS PR Assistant Rob Cook said there is a variety of art and there will be something for everyone.
“CASS-MIND Academy is located here in Zanesville, started by Cassandra McDonald and has been carried on by her son Nathan. They help children on the Autism spectrum with learning,” Cook said. “Part of what they do is artwork. A lot of the times for children, especially for autistic children, it may be hard to find the words to express yourself so they express themselves through their artwork.”
The students were inspired by well-known artists to create paper cut out pieces, wax resistant crayon, sculpture, and group pieces. Cook said this exhibit will be displayed in the Carnegie Wing.
“Come on out. Everyone will find something that they like. It’s beautiful, colorful. We have a very strong arts community in Zanesville. The Muskingum County Library Systems is really proud to partner with a lot of agencies and support the artists in whatever way we can,” Cook said.
The opening of the exhibit is from 4 to 6 p.m. but if you can’t make it that day the exhibit will be there all throughout June and July. To find out more information, head to the Muskingum County Library Systems website.
