Western Kansas Scholastic Closing Ceremony

Joe Denoyer - February 17, 2017 10:09 am

 

Every year the Western Kansas Scholastic Art Association organizes an exhibit for middle school and high school art students to display their work and compete for the chance to advance to the National Scholastic Art and Writing exhibit. The Baker Arts Center in Liberal has the privilege of hosting this wonderful exhibit which showcases the artwork of young artists residing in the western third of our state.

A panel of judges reviews the works and selects which ones will be accepted into the show and the ones to receive awards. The Gold Key and American Vision Award winners are the ones that advance to the National Scholastic Exhibit and become eligible for scholarships. This exhibit began in 1923 and continues to be the best outlet for the recognition of the artistic accomplishments of the youth in our country.

The exhibit has been on display at the Baker Arts Center since January 24, and will close with a Public Closing Reception on February 26 from 2-4pm. Light refreshments will be served. The Baker Arts Center is located at 624 N. Pershing in Liberal, and is open Tuesday through Friday 9-5 and 1-3 on Sundays.
