InReach: Drive Thru Artwork Showcase 2020
With the commitment of offering art, content, and experiences in mind, 100 Bechtler Craft Kits were specifically designed, assembled, and delivered to InReach, our community partner since 2011. The kits included prompts inspired by techniques and artists from the Bechtler collection, a variety of art supplies, and recorded video instructions from Bechtler staff.
From collages to paintings to drawings, completed artwork began pouring in. Traditionally, the Bechtler showcases InReach artwork at the museum to celebrate the participants and their creations. This year, our teams created a socially distant outdoor "Drive-Thru Artist Showcase" highlighting the work created during Bechtler classes and with the participants' at-home Bechtler Craft Kits. Family, friends, coaches, and InReach staff were invited to either drive through or wear their masks to view the participants' artwork. For those unable to attend, the pieces from the showcase can be viewed through a virtual gallery here.
