‘Battle of the Walls’

The Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts will present artwork from area high school students in the second annual “Battle of the Walls.” The exhibit opens to the public at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 13, and showcases students from Glenwood Springs, Rifle, Bridges, Yampah Mountain, Roaring Fork and Coal Ridge high schools.

Each school has submitted 12 self-selected pieces that were judged by area artists, resulting in a number of awards given to both individuals and school teams. This exhibit also provided the opportunity for high school seniors to submit work, which was judged separately, for a chance to win a scholarship provided by the Glenwood Springs Art Guild.

The exhibit will be up through March 31.
