Dozens of students from local high schools will showcase their artistic talents in St. Louis Community College-Wildwood’s Ninth Annual Eco-Art Exhibit.

The juried art show, “Sustainability: It’s An Art,” runs March 6-10 at STLCC-Wildwood, 2645 Generations Drive.

The community is invited to visit the campus to view the artwork. In addition, students will be honored during a reception and awards ceremony 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, March 9.

The exhibit is inspired by the architecture and green building practices used to erect the Wildwood campus. Since 2009, more than 600 high school students have participated in this special exhibit.

This year, the show will include artwork from students who attend Barat Academy, as well as Eureka, Jefferson, Marquette, Lafayette and Pacific high schools. Prior to the exhibition, each school will select 10 pieces to enter into the show.

The exhibit will be juried by Dion Dion, a nationally exhibiting and award-winning artist in clay, handmade paper, mixed media sculpture (1980-1995), and oil paintings (2010-present).

In addition to selecting overall winners for the show, awards for first, second and third place will be awarded for each school. Moreover, a People's Choice Award will also be given to the student whose artwork has received the most votes from visitors during the week-long exhibition.
