Youth Art Month celebrated in Duncan
DUNCAN March is Youth Art Month, and the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center is serving as an exhibition host for area high schools.
This year's national theme is "Building Community Through Art." This is the eighth year the Heritage Center has participated in and encouraged young artists during Youth Art Month.
Paintings, drawings, sculpture, pottery, mosaics and photography are on display in this year's show, which ends March 31 at the center, 1000 Chisholm Trail Parkway in Duncan.
For the first time this year, students from Lawton Public Schools and Walters High School are participating, as well as Torah Meadow Home School. Other schools include Duncan High School, Marlow High School and FAME Academy which includes students from Comanche, Walters and Ryan. Several students have multiple entries.
Dalton Reid, a Duncan High School senior, is an intern at the Heritage Center and he's helped install the show as part of his internship. His artwork is in the show and he has participated in Youth Art Month previously. There is no charge to students for entering their artwork in the show.
