Recycled art competition open for Colorado schools

I am writing to share with you a wonderful opportunity no community should pass up.

The ECOArt Exhibition: Colorado Schools K-12 is an event presenting the creative talents of young artists from Colorado. This exhibition provides you and your school the opportunity to share in the creative achievements of your students while demonstrating the goals and values of art education.

Thanks to the generosity of the Thrift Shop of Aspen, $5,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to various school art departments. Participation in this event could garner your school art department a $500 award.

The artistic submissions must be created from recycled and/or reclaimed objects. Judging is based on most artistic and first-, second- and third-place awards will be given to elementary, middle, and high schools.

The application to participate is due on March 1 with art due April 1. The exhibition runs from April 3 through April 25. A reception will be held Thursday, April 11, from 4 to 6 p.m. where awards will be presented.

The Red Brick Council for the Arts promotes art in education and we urge you to take advantage of this opportunity. Please contact us for help if, for any reason, there are obstacles to your participation.
