The Bridging Generations artwork will be created by ninety-five Clinton Elementary School students. We will celebrate with an open house on May 3, 2014 through the school’s Evening with Art program. The exhibit will then move to the Clinton Public Library where it will be on display from May 12 through May 23.
The Bridging Generations Exhibit gives young people an opportunity to exhibit their art in a supportive environment and encourages them to develop a lifelong love of art. Since its inception in 2004, when the WRAA celebrated its 50 year anniversary, these events have been held in Prairie du Sac, Milton, Mineral Point, Verona, as well as at the Middleton Public Library and the Children’s Museum in Madison.
In 2013 it was first held in Clinton, WI which will be the site again this year. Last year’s event was held in conjunction with the Clinton Public Library 100 Year Celebration. It provided a wonderful opportunity for eighty-five Clinton Elementary School 4th grade artists to share their work. A couple of those proud artists are shown above.
The WRAA is seeking award donations to support Bridging Generations events and to give awards to the Bridging Generations exhibitors. Awards play a vital part in imparting a feeling of accomplishment to our budding young artists. If you’re interesting in contributing to this program, please mail award donations to:
WRAA Awards Chair – Bridging Generations

Please make checks payable to WRAA and indicate that your donation is for Bridging Generations. Also, be sure to include complete name, address and contact information as well as organization or business name if applicable.
We are hoping in the future to expand this program to additional locations so that more your artists can get this opportunity.
Thank you for supporting Bridging Generations and our young artists!
