2022 ART Blooms Banner Contest Winners Announced

The long-awaited announcement is here!  This year’s theme was “Paws, Fins, Wings & Things – Pets or Wildlife”.  Mineral Area Council on the Arts (MACOA) received an astounding 2300+ entries from across the region for banners that will appear in the 10 towns of the Arcadia Valley, Bismarck, Bonne Terre, Caledonia, Desloge, Farmington, Frankclay, Fredericktown, Park Hills, and Potosi.  The artists are anonymous during the selection process which was completed by representatives from MACOA and each respective town and/or sponsor(s).  The winning artwork for each town represents K-12 student artwork from the local school district, private schools, and homeschools within the immediate vicinity.  Of the 2300+ entries over 300 pieces of artwork have been selected to be displayed!  Banners are being created now and will begin to appear over the next few weeks.

“This has been the best year yet!  I have the most fun of anyone as I see all of the entries while sorting them by town and age in preparation for the selection process. As the coordinator,  I don’t have to make the selections.  With so much talent in our region and also so much imagination, it was difficult!” remarked Scottye Adkins, Executive Director of MACOA.
