eeks local artwork

The new Danville Convention Center will provide an opportunity for local artists to display their paintings and framed photographs, according to Don Vizi, president/CEO.

"We have a lot of wall space, and we would like to give the local artists a place to display their paintings and framed photographs for sale," said Vizi. "This provides us the opportunity to decorate the center with some great local art."

An art show for local artists also is being planned. Admission to the show will be free for the public. Local artists may contact Vizi at (859) 936-0020. Art to be displayed will be selected based on themes of the center's rooms.
