Students to show art skills at High School Art Exhibition

More than 1,500 students from about 60 schools are expected to attend Fort Hays State University's 39th annual High School Art Exhibition on Wednesday, April 17, at Gross Memorial Coliseum. The event is hosted by FHSU's Department of Art and Design.

Entries include sculptures, pencil drawings, oil and acrylic paintings, ceramics and graphics. High school students may participate in art projects throughout the day. The exhibit will be open for public viewing from 10 a.m. to noon.

Students may also take part in a sidewalk drawing competition. The school that creates the champion sidewalk art has the honor of taking home a traveling trophy and is awarded other small prizes.
