The 4th annual Youth Arts Council Exhibition will present the inspiring efforts and creativity of local high school students. This collaborative exhibition between Lexington’s Youth Arts Council, the Living Arts and Science Center (LASC), and the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra (CKYO) is based on the “Enigma Variation” by 19th century composer Edward Elgar. Each movement is a musical portrait of one of Elgar’s friends or family members and in the score he labels each one with the initials of the subject or a nickname. The variations are evocative of the character or personality of the individual, a specific interaction or experience they shared, or a specific event in their lives. The most famous movement is “Nimrod” which was written for his best friend. Artists can use any of the four variations posted on youthartscouncil.org as a prompt to create a visual artwork. Each participant will have at least one artwork on display at the Singletary Center, and a selection of those works will be placed on display at the LASC Gallery for the June Gallery Hop.
