The ALT Art Show is a cultural exchange event organized by ALTs (Assistant Language Teachers) to showcase their countries and cultures to the citizens of Sendai and Miyagi Prefecture.
This year marks the 8th ALT Art Show and with it the new theme of COLO(U)RS. The “u” is in parenthesis because the word is spelled “colors” in America, but “colours” in most other countries. This year's art show will celebrate the many colors of art, and the many colours of ourselves!
You are most welcome to come by yourself or bring your family and friends along to join in the fun! On behalf of the ALTs who have helped with this year's ALT Art Show, we look forward to seeing you!
This year's schedule:
Opening Gala April 16 6:30 - 9:00
The Opening Gala will be held on the first night to showcase ALT’s countries and cultures! There will be several performances by ALT artists, and previews of the artwork.
