Renton Municipal Arts Commission
Deadline: 6/16/2020

The Renton Municipal Arts Commission invites student artists, grades pre-K through 12, to submit their works about how they “Envision a Healthy Future.” Art gives us hope, purpose and a desire to see a future beyond these difficult times. This competition is an effort to develop community and to bring together residents of our city through expressions of emotions.
