Young artists display Feb. 26

Talents of students in the elementary and high schools in the Diocese of Oakland will be on display, in a gallery setting and on stage, at the 2012 Lillian Black Children’s Art Festival.

Bishop O’Dowd High School will be the venue for the event, which will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 26.

The celebration of the visual and performing arts in the Catholic schools of the diocese will include students in kindergarten through 12th. Music, dramatic and dance performances will take place both on the stage, while the visual arts will be displayed in the school gym.

Bishop O’Dowd High School is at 9500 Stearns Ave., Oakland.

The festival began when Lillian Black, who had been principal at Corpus Christi School in Piedmont, organized a Sunday afternoon venue for performers and artists. She had been principal at Corpus Christi School until she joined the diocese as an assistant superintendent. After her death, the annual arts festival was named in her honor. This will be its 26th edition.
