Stevens Henager College to host Art Show for The Family Place

Each year, Stevens-Henager College of Logan has hosted a high school art show. This year, though, they will be hosting what they call “The Hundred Dollar Art Show” on May 16th from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at their local campus. It’s a joint effort between The Family Place and Stevens-Henager College. On KVNU’s For the People program on Monday, Danielle Bird, educational coordinator, said it’s a project that has worked with success in another Utah community.

“Down in Springville (Utah), they do one of these events in November every year. My brother-in-law, Mike Bohman, who is an artist, participates every year, which is where I learned about this event. I thought it would be great to bring that event to Logan.

“The Springville Art Museum raises money for themselves to help maintain themselves. We thought it would be a great idea to not only showcase local artists but to raise some money for a great local organization, The Family Place,” she explained.

The show will highlight many local artists, including high school students. Patrons can purchase art for $100 or less, and at the end of the night the artists total up their sales. They will pay a 10% commission of their total sales to The Family Place. And the college will match donations up to $2,500.

Bird said they have about 15 committed artists so far and they are still accepting artists until May 1st. Interested ones can contact Danielle at the school at (435) 792-6970 ext. 5030. Bird said there is no entry fee.
