Gallery Director, Donna McGee says, “In today’s commercial society where value is often judged in terms of potential for financial gain, creative needs and artistic vision are sometimes seen as frivolous. The need to express ourselves artistically has existed for over thirty thousand years, but when budgets are limited, art programs are often the first to suffer cuts. We congratulate all of these young artists and say thank you to their parents, teachers and schools for encouraging their creative pursuits.”
Awards will be presented at the reception to be held on Thursday, March 20th, from 4:30 to 6:00 P.M. in Dunbar Gallery located on Hutchinson Street, Grambling State University. The public is encouraged to attend. Gallery hours are from 8-4:30 PM, M-TH and 8:30 – 12:00 Noon on Friday. Accommodations are available for large groups and special needs persons.
