On Saturday, May 23rd, MidCoast Fine Arts hosted the 2015 Art Works Expo at the Bucktown Center for the Arts at 225 East 2nd Street in downtown Davenport. Central, North, and West High School students competed for prize money to support supply budgets. Students had 5 ½ hours to create a large scale pastel creation on two four foot by eight foot panels on a theme they chose. The pastel murals from all ten competing high schools will be on display in MidCoast Fine Arts’ Bucktown Gallery through June 26th, when a closing reception is planned and winners will be announced. Please consider a visit to the gallery by June 26th so you can vote on your favorite!
