Congratulations to the Winners of the 2011 Emerging Young Artist Art Contest!
All winning entries will be on display at the Laramie County Library in Cheyenne from May 11-31, 2011.
One hundred and thirty guests attended the joint Arts Alliance and ASK After-School-for Kid’s art contest reception for the winners of the 2011 Young Artists Art contest at the Laramie County Library. It was standing room only. Guests were treated to the toe-tapping music of East High’s Strolling Strings and the wonderful gourmet offerings prepared by Dr. Michelle Aldrich and her class of culinary arts students. This truly was a celebration of the arts! Thirty-five winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd place and Honorable Mention) received an award check or gift certificate.
This year’s contest was about using Art to illustrate a science concept. Entries ranged from a 3-D illustration of the anatomy of an offshore squid to a depiction of a city of the future. To emulate Leonardo Da Vinci, the Alliance asked students to put their thoughts and explorations about science down on paper for others to see.
