OBSERVANCES
State Exhibit at Topeka Capitol Building
Excerpts from Linda Nelson-Bova’s speech:
Elliot Eisner championed the arts in education
throughout his lifetime once saying "to neglect the
contribution of the arts in education . . . is to deny
children access to one of the most stunning aspects
of their culture and one of the most potent means
for developing their minds“.
KAEA Co-President Linda Nelson-Bova
speaking at the YAM celebration
So, by your being here today for this Youth Art
Month celebration, you represent exactly the kind
of symbol that shows our young adults that the arts
are important. And for that, I think that Elliot
Eisner would be very proud.
