"On Track for shaping
In honor of the 'Spike 150" Celebrations, our ART -TELL theme this year is "On Track for Shaping the Future". Spike 150 is a statewide and national celebration of the joining of the rails 150 years ago in 1869. This beginning of the transcontinental train system changed the future of this country, the completion of which happened in our own backyard in near by Promontory, Utah. The celebration is not only highlighting railroad history, but the results of the determination and innovation that made it happen.
Artists in Our April ART-TELL competition, will be asked to address the "On Track for Shaping the Future " theme in a 25 word or less comment on their artwork. Trains and/or railroad art need not be part of the entry. The emphasis can be on innovation and similar thoughts about the future or other personal interpretation. A call to entries for artists in Box Elder, Cache and Weber counties (with similar guidelines to past years) will be posted by December 15. All visual art media are welcome- paintings, drawings, fiber arts, Sculpture, photography,etc. welcome.
About the theme for the annual adult art competition:
