The Fox Cities Building for the Arts is pleased to officially open the John and Susan Toussaint Student Artist Gallery, located on the building's 5th floor. Visit the Student Artist Gallery on May 7 for our grand opening, and to view the gallery's debut butterfly inspired exhibit.
The exhibit features over 100 pieces of butterfly artwork created by our area's youngest artists. Local elementary school students from Columbus Elementary School, St. Francis Xavier Elementary School - Marquette Campus, Edison Elementary School and Appleton Bilingual School created butterfly artwork to display to help raise awareness for the Butterfly Festival on June 18, a fundraiser through Family Services to support Parent Connection. Half of the pieces will be featured in our Student Artist Gallery and half will be on display at the Appleton Public Library.
