Current Museum Exhibit
Statewide, High School Art Competition and Exhibition
April 11 through May 10, 2014
By Mary Alice Hobbs
High school students took many voyages in their imagination to produce works in all media for the Brigham City Museum’s “Young Masters” statewide art competition and exhibition. The artists created pieces about the rhapsody of a duck, prosthetics, a winged lion, gourmet Japanese food, a mystical blue mountain volcano and a paper falcon.
Artworks accepted for exhibition will hang in the museum through May 10. The museum is located at 24 North 300 West. The entrance is on the west side. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For further information, please phone (435) 226-1439 or visit www.brighamcitymuseum.org.
