On Monday night there was a fantastic Celebration for Arts Education at Cleveland City Hall.  About 200 students, family members, educators, politicians, and arts education supporters came out to see exciting performances and art exhibits presented by the children participating in Art is Education, a program of Young Audiences and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD).

Congratulations to all the students, teachers, parents, and artists who made this a fabulous party!
