My old artwork is either hanging up on walls in my parents house, or in folders in their basement. Well, VSA Arts is giving kids a more exciting space to display their artwork, in their exhibition Celebrating Who I Am. The exhibition, which is currently displayed in Union Station, features the work of kids ages 5 to 15 from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Be sure to check out the work of Antonio, age 15, repping the district with his drawing “Box Out.” Said Antonio of his piece: “I am a natural artist, but also love to play basketball.” Now that’s what I’m talking about.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
