Instead of Arts Night, Barrington will have 'Gallery Weekend'

The art department for Barrington Public Schools has planned a special "Gallery Weekend" for May 23-25.

Normally, the high school hosts an Arts Night event around this time of year. But because the school buildings are closed, officials are instead planning a community-wide art gallery "to highlight the amazing work of Barrington artists, young and old."

According to school officials, students have been asked to display a piece of their art work on the front lawn or tacked to their front door. Officials are also hoping other residents would join in and do the same.

The town-wide gallery will take place Saturday through Monday, May 23 to 25.

"On Memorial Day weekend you and your family can take a stroll through your neighborhood or take a drive around town and enjoy all of the beautiful artwork that is being created during this unprecedented time," stated a release from the art department.
