2023 High School Art Invitational pieces on display at Joel D. Valdez Main Library

This year marks the 28th consecutive year we have invited local High School Art and Photography teachers to submit and display their students' art at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library. We received well over 100 submissions from 25 teachers this year. A jury of artists, librarians and art professionals will select top winners and prizes will be distributed.

The exhibit is on display through the end of March. Please come and visit!
