When you think of your ideal community, what comes to mind?
This is the question that was posed to students in eighth grade or younger in an art contest hosted by East Lake United Methodist Church. The instructions were simple: “Show us what you dream for your community!”
The church received over forty diverse and unique entries, and chose two sites at which to host the art. The first, Ruffner Mountain Nature Center, hosted the students’ entries March 28 through April 1, and the art currently resides at our very own East Lake Branch Library until Friday, April 8.
The contest will award $50 to the winner, who will be announced April 10 via social media. People in the community are encouraged to stop by to view the artwork and vote on a favorite piece. Be sure to support your young local artists and their ideas for community improvement by visiting and voting!
