Entries for the Centennial Youth Art Contest are on display today through May 4 in the Municipal Art Gallery at City Hall.
The contest features art inspired by the theme, “Beverly Hills 100 – What it Means to Me.” Contestants include youths from aged 5-18 years of age from Beverly Hills schools and from Beverly Hills’ Sister City Herzliya, Israel.
Categories for the original art submissions include Visual Arts, Film Production and Photography. The winners will be divided into four different age groups.
“I am thrilled that our younger residents have embraced the Centennial and honored our history in their own unique and creative way,” said Mayor Lili Bosse, also a judge.
Winners will be announced May 1 at a City Hall reception from 5-7 p.m. A representative of the Israeli consulate will be present when the winner is announced.
The Municipal Gallery will be open for viewing Friday, May 2, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Municipal Gallery, 455 Rexford Dr.
