FBCA Students Debut Art Exhibit at Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center
Inaugural Exhibit Runs Through Aug. 28
An impressive collection of art by the students of Fort Bend Christian Academy (FBCA) is now on display through August 28 at the all-new Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center where visitors can enjoy student interpretations of “Marvelous Light.” The inspiration for the exhibit is to show that “art is not just a gift or passion but that passion and gift is connected to a Creator and a Savior.”
Lining the walls of the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center’s Kids’ Hall, dozens of works by children ages 5 to 18 showcase a collection of oil, color pencil, charcoal, color relief-printmaking, graphic design, watercolor and photography.
Presented by Fort Bend Christian Academy, the inaugural exhibit is the first of many planned for the space.
The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center – A Very Special Project of the Children’s Museum of Houston, opened Memorial Day weekend at 198 Kempner Street and Highway 90 in Sugar Land.
“We’re honored to host the first of many art exhibits in the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center that will certainly engage and inspire children for years to come,” says Kim Rice, Director of Public Relations for Fort Bend Christian Academy. Founded in 1987, FBCA is a college preparatory Christian school for grades Pre-K-12 located on a 35-acre campus in Sugar Land.
The year-round Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center is housed in a repurposed building within the former Imperial Sugar factory. Families can explore the wonders of science, shop in a replica grocery store, report for a newspaper, solve crimes, run a bank, teach in a school classroom, serve customers in a nostalgic soda fountain café and more. Interactive exhibits and galleries managed as platforms for learning are ideal for children up to 12 years.
Hours for the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center are 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. General admission for both adults and children age 1+ is $12.
Annual family memberships starting at $120 are available. The memberships entitle up to six family members in the same household to unlimited visits to the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center and the Children’s Museum of Houston.
