The annual Early Voices Collaborative Exhibition is a commitment between the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood and local schools and learning centers to utilize group art-making to foster successful childhood learning and development. Since 2019, the Early Voices partnership between pre-schools and the Center has grown to include elementary students as well. Early Voices artists are given the opportunity to create artwork based on intriguing themes like “wonder” and "kindness" and exhibit their masterpiece in a professional, fine art space. 

Early Voices Collaborative Elementary Exhibition 

Tues., Jan. 18 – Sun., Feb. 13, 2022 

2022’s Theme: All Are Welcome 

In its second year, the Early Voices Collaborative Elementary Exhibition is a partnership with local elementary schools designed to give a voice to the value of art, creative expression, collaboration, and social-emotional development for students in kindergarten through to 5th grades.


This year the exhibit will feature the works of two local elementary schools:

  • Hollywood Central

  • Orange Brook


Classrooms at these schools were supplied with canvases and picture books to inspire their creative process while connecting art-making back to literacy. The students in these classes were tasked with creating collaborative pieces related to the theme “All are Welcome,” celebrating inclusion and acceptance. 


Early Voices Collaborative Pre-K Exhibition 

Tues., April 5 – Sun., May 1, 2022 

2022’s Theme: All Feelings Welcome 

Now in its fourth year, early-learning centers and preschools are invited to participate in Early Voices taking place each April during the national Week of the Young Child. Selected schools receive one canvas for each participating class and some hand-selected picture books to inspire their class to create a collaborative group masterpiece! Each finished piece is submitted to the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood, where it will be exhibited in our Community Gallery to be seen by all who visit the Center. The exhibit is celebrated by the Early Voices Opening Reception held at the Center for teachers, school leaders, participants, and their friends and family.
