40 North is thrilled to announce - Those Who Teach, Can - a new exhibition at 40 Point One art space, 1300 S. Neil St. (inside Consolidated Communications and across the street from Meatheads). Champaign Unit 4 Art Teachers are displaying their personal artworks in this annual exhibition from May 20th through August 11th.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, May 20th, from 5-9 p.m. at 40 Point One.

A group of accomplished art teachers set out to dispel a common myth about the abilities of teachers with their show. The artwork, from Champaign Unit 4 School District Art Teachers, represents the diverse talents of its faculty, working in a range of media. These artists/teachers prove that they CAN with their creative, inspirational and thoughtful works of art.
