Mingus Mountain Regional Juried Student Art Show

Mingus Mountain Art Show logoSedona AZ (April 23, 2016) – The annual Mingus Mountain Student Art Show has a long and rich history honoring excellence in the arts from Northern Arizona high school students. This show began over twenty-four years ago with an Arizona State University alumni group. Later, the Northern Arizona Watercolor Society (NAWS) took over the student show, and now, Made In Clarkdale, the artists’ association of Clarkdale, is very proud to host and administer this unique student art event. In addition to competitive judging, scholarships and cash awards from various organizations are awarded at this juried event.

With Made In Clarkdale stepping up to become the organizing sponsor, the event will be held in the historic Clark Memorial Clubhouse, the same venue and building where the Made In Clarkdale annual art show takes place each year.

“Our Board feels that sponsoring this event fits perfectly with our mission to nurture creativity and to support art education,” stated Greg Jiede, MIC Chairperson. “It’s a great way to support the arts in all Northern Arizona high schools, provide the students with the experience of a competitive public show, and to be able to offer scholarships and cash prizes to them.”

High schools throughout the area will be participating, and there will be over 200 entries. Over $1,500 will be awarded to the top artists through scholarships and cash prizes.

The public is invited to attend this free event in the Clark Memorial Clubhouse Auditorium, 9th and Main Streets, Clarkdale, Arizona 86324, from May 5 through May 8, 2016. Scheduled hours are 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; the Awards ceremony will be 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, followed by the event closing at 4:00 p.m. that same afternoon.

MIC artists and other artists are donating small works of art to be sold in restaurants and wine tasting rooms throughout the Verde Valley to help fund the show during April and May. More information can be found on the Made in Clarkdale website MadeInClarkdale.org or the Made In Clarkdale Facebook page.
