Our City - Manchester Through Children's Eyes

Inti Art Exhibit at the Currier is an outstanding success

Over 80 people gathered at the Currier Museum of Art Community Gallery on August 4, 2016, for a gala evening featuring art produced Inti Academy children. “We were inspired by the children’s art, their essays, and meeting with the young artists,” were typical comments. They were struck by the value of Inti Academy’s mission to provide growth and development to enhance the lives of Manchester’s refugee, immigrant, and inner-city youth who mostly live below the poverty line.

The exhibit also showcased Becky Field’s portraits of more than one dozen of the students who are participating in the Currier Art Center/Inti outreach program. Max Latona, Inti chairman and co-founder, Bruce McColl, Director of Art Education at the Currier, and Corie Lyford, Outreach Coordinator, were featured speakers. A quote from Bruce McColl, “I can honestly and enthusiastically say that our programs with Inti are among the highlights of my career as an educator and community arts activist. I’m so very proud.”
