The 21st Century McCracken County Community Centers exhibition features works by McCracken County public school students participating in this year's 21st Century art program, encouraging participation in afterschool educational programs in other areas of academic need.

The exhibitions will remain on display through April 10. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm; Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.
