CVAC has partnered with Ballet Excel Ohio, for their Tuesday Night modeling sessions since July of 2018. Ballet Excel Ohio has been sending models to pose for local artists dressed in spectacular attire. In preparation for their upcoming production of Peter Man on March 9th & 10th @ the Akron Civic Theater, the models sent to CVAC were dressed in their Peter Pan costumes.
To celebrate this partnership, Ballet Excel Ohio and CVAC have come together to present A Brush with Art, an art exhibition to be on display during the three performances of Peter Pan at the Akron Civic Theater. The artwork displayed will be inspired from the modeling sessions at CVAC, featuring Ballet Excel Ohio dancers. There will be a People’s Choice selection process taking place for attendees to vote for their favorite works of art. Attendees can purchase the artwork during this event. An Artist Meeting-and-great will take place during Sundays performance and the People’s Choice Award winner will be announced during intermission.
If you have participated in our Tuesday Night Modeling session you are eligible to enter this exhibition. Between the three performances, approximately 20,000-30,000 people will have the opportunity to experiences your art. Also, the models family and friends will be in attendance at the event, increasing the opportunity for art sales.
