Saturday was the final day of the annual Mon County Schools Youth Arts Celebration--ending the two-week span of one of Morgantown's most popular exhibits.
Every year public and private school students in kindergarten through 12th grade put their artwork on display at the Monongalia Arts Center. This year, hundreds of different pieces of art were placed in the Benedum and Davis Galleries. Art enthusiasts say it's important that kids learn about art and music at an early age.
"I think it's very important. I think it makes life better. I think when times are hard art and music really make people feel better and brings enjoyment to life. I think it's very, very important," MAC Lobby Manager Daniel Gibbons told 5 News.
The exhibit is comprised entirely of original artwork and it first opened on April 12. This is the 5th year in a row that the Monongalia Arts Center has held the exhibit.
