DREAMS ON DISPLAY

 NEW YORK, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, Feb. 24, one of New York's newest gallery spaces will open, displaying something uniquely personal and telling -- dreams, as depicted by elementary school children from across the country.
 Dreams of world peace, tales of inner-city survival and expectations of the uncertain future that awaits them are brought to life through art that will hang in the ACA Exhibition Space at One East 53rd St.
 The space is the latest example of the arts community and business working together in partnership. The American Council for the Arts, a leading force in shaping national arts policy, and Binney & Smith, maker of Crayola and Liquitex art products, have joined efforts to create a niche in the New York gallery landscape. The result is the ACA Exhibition Space, a gallery solely dedicated to showcasing student works from elementary through the graduate level.
 The opening exhibition runs Feb. 24-March 30 and features selected works from Crayola Dream-Makers, a nationally recognized elementary art education program. The program was established to help art and classroom teachers enhance the role of hands-on art activities as an integral part of the kindergarten through sixth grade curriculum.
 "Children have the ability to view the world through fresh eyes," said Mark O'Brien, Binney & Smith spokesperson. "Through their work, we can see the world in a totally non-traditional light and grasp a better understanding of the concerns and interests of today's kids."
 In addition to the Dream-Makers works on display, two collaborative works will be shown from the collection of Studio In A School Association, a non-profit organization that sponsors professional artists who work with children in the New York City public school system.
 The ACA Exhibition Space is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. through 6 p.m. Saturdays. The gallery opening is from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24. Additional information regarding the gallery may be obtained by calling 212-223-ARTS.
