The Butte County office of Education Superintendent’s fourth annual juried high school art show features nearly 130 pieces of 9-12th grade students’ finest art works, selected for submission by 13 public high schools in Butte County.
An opening reception and awards presentation took place Thursday evening, March 2nd, at the Butte County Superior Courthouse in Chico, where the art will be on display through the month of March, which is National Youth Art Month.
BCOE Superintendent Tim Taylor is an artist himself, and was on hand for the awards presentation. The event was catered by students in the Pleasant Valley High School Culinary Arts program.
Inspire School of the Arts and Sciences student Olivia Steele won Best in Show. There were first, second and third place winners in all categories and the Butte County Grand Jury selected one of the works for the cover of it's 2018 Report.
The goal of the show is to demonstrate what students can accomplish when provided with an opportunity to fully develop their artistic, cultural, linguistic and creative abilities through quality, standards-based arts learning. It's also to recognize high school visual art students, teachers, and programs in the county ... and to recognize the importance of funding arts education in public schools.
Judges of the show were Action News Now Anchorwoman and Arts Advocate Linda Watkins-Bennett, Pat Macias, President of the Museum of Northern California Art and Machelle Conn, with the Oroville Arts Commission.
