Palm Desert Community Gallery
2015 Student Art and Essay Contest
Student Art and Watercolors on Display in Community Gallery Exhibitions
On display through June 5, the City’s 2015 Student Art and Essay Contest features artworks and essays created by Palm Desert students.
Now in its 30th year, the Contest is a favorite tradition in Palm Desert schools, encouraging students to discover and display their talents through writing and art.
In January, more than 2,000 students, from kindergarteners to high school seniors, were challenged to write an essay or create art reflecting this year’s theme, “Palm Desert Through My Eyes”.
The colorful and thought provoking results of their work will be judged by Palm Desert’s Mayor and members of the Art in Public Places Commission with first, second, and third place winners receiving ribbons. First place winners will be announced at a public awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, in the Council Chamber at City Hall.
The Palm Desert Community Gallery is located in Palm Desert City Hall, 73-510 Fred Waring Drive, and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call 760-346-0611, ext. 664 or visit www.palmdesertart.org.
