Davenport elementary schoolers have their art displayed alongside some of the greats.
It was opening day of ‘Young Artists at the Figge' for davenport students.
The annual event shows off in elementary artwork from more than 500 area students in 7 districts during its run.
Organizers said it's a way for kids to connect with art on their own level.
"Thinking about all these connections the kids are making, from what they're learning in the classroom to what they see in this, really it's an art book come to life," said director of education at the Figge, Melissa Hueting.
Davenport student's work is on display until April 14th.
The Geneseo school district is next starting April 20th.
