The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center continues its annual spotlight of area high school students in March with the Youth Art Month show. The 2020 nationwide theme is “Take a Journey Through Art. This will be the 10th year for the museum to participate in the national program.

Art is submitted by the teachers on behalf of their students. A public reception will be 3:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5. All students, their families and other supporters of the program are invited to attend.

Students who are interested in having their work displayed should contact their art teacher. Teachers who would like to submit work can contact Leah Mulkey, CTHC Education Coordinator for details.

There is no cost to the students or schools to participate, or to attend the public reception. Historically, art entries range from 140 to more than 300 pieces of art submitted by more than 100 area art students. Past shows have included mosaics, scratchboard, drawings, collage, paintings and photography. Art teachers are encouraged to follow the theme, but it is not required. If you are a teacher who has never participated in the Heritage Center’s annual show, please contact Leah Mulkey in advance. Space is limited for art display.
