K-12 Student Art on Display
Looking to be inspired by environmental works of art created by local youth? Look no further than the Green Life Art Exhibit at the Lyndon House Arts Center. The exhibit officially opened on April 1 and remains open through the month of April. The Lyndon House (located at 211 Hoyt Street) is open to visitors on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 AM - 8 PM, and on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 AM - 5 PM.
The Green Life Art Contest is an annual art contest geared towards K-12 students that falls under the larger umbrella of the Athens-Clarke County Green Life Awards. Organized by several ACCGov divisions focused on environmental education and sustainability, the Green Life Awards recognize environmental leaders in our community, and the art contest has been a piece of this program for over 10 years.
This year, the theme for the contest was “Renew, Reinvent, and Rejoice,” encouraging students to illustrate how we all can renew our commitment to the environment, reinvent ways to live a green life, and rejoice in environmental successes. Over 70 entries were submitted from public, private, and home schools. Winners were selected in several categories, including 2D, 3D, and digital artwork, photography, poetry, and video.
