MURFREESBORO, September 21, 2017– Representative Bryan Terry, MD (R-Murfreesboro) will be hosting the 2017 District 48 High School Art contest on October 26 at 5:30 PM at Patterson Park. Rep. Terry sent out invitations to Oakland, Riverdale, Providence Christian Academy, Middle Tennessee Christian School, Daniel McKee, and Central Magnet School which are high schools either in District 48 or serve students who live in the district. With the Tennessee General Assembly moving from the War Memorial Building to the newly renovated Cordell Hull Building, the top three places will have their artwork displayed in the new District 48 office.
“We really enjoyed the 2016 art contest and the winning art pieces made a valuable addition to the District 48 office. Anyone that came into the office got to see the talent we have in Rutherford County on full display,” explained Terry. “With the move to a new building, I’m excited to see what our students create that we can showcase at the Capitol.”
This year’s contest will feature three celebrity judges. City Councilman Eddie Smotherman, Scott Broden from the Daily News Journal, and Jennifer Grissom from Murfreesboro Little Theatre have all agreed to judge the contest. The artwork is to be a painting, drawing, printmaking, or sculpture. All student participants will receive recognition from the state.
“We have a lot of talented students in Rutherford County. From academics to athletics to the arts, our students usually shine, but they don’t always have an outlet to showcase those talents. I think it is important to provide opportunities to students and foster their talents. I would like to encourage anyone that is interested to participate,” stated Rep. Terry.
