Teenage artists get a bridge to glory
No matter which Chattanooga neighborhood you’re in, local artwork is always waiting to be found. Like the level of talent, support for local artists is great.
With a mission “to build a stronger community through the arts,” ArtsBuild (formerly Allied Arts) has been Chattanooga’s official arts agency for 45 years. Working to raise money to support art and arts education, one major achievement has been creation and funding of arts education programs for Hamilton County Schools.
Now ArtsBuild is hosting a student arts contest. Until Monday June 16 at 5 p.m., ArtsBuild is accepting entries from Chattanooga-area students entering grades 9-12. Submissions must be the student’s original work, two-dimensional, include image(s) of the Walnut Street Bridge, and be no larger than 9-by-12 inches.
The winning artist will receive $250 and have their work displayed on ArtsBuild’s marketing materials for its new event, Creative Juices: Breakfast on the Bridge to Support Arts Education.
This event, set for Saturday, September 13, will take place on the Walnut Street Bridge. Starting at 8 a.m., it will be a morning of food, art activities, and entertainment.
