Artwork submitted for the Bicentennial Arts Contest will be exhibited at the Monroe County History Center from July 27 to Oct. 27.
As part of the City of Bloomington and Monroe County Bicentennial Celebration, young people in the Bloomington area were invited to submit artwork for the Bicentennial Arts Contest, which showcases a minority or underrepresented person or organization from the community’s history.
Artwork were submitted by groups and individual artists, and winners were chosen by a committee that considered its context and inspiration. Each winner received a cash prize and a certificate of recognition from the City and County.
The artworks will be displayed on the second floor of the History Center, located at 202 E. Sixth Street, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays.
Admission charge is $2 for adults and $1 for youth ages 6 through 17.
