2019 Art Show

‘Art for Change’ a big hit
Posted on 05/15/2019

VICTORVILLE — The Victor Valley Union High School District’s aspiring artists and performers drew a packed house recently as they showed off their “Art for Change.”

That was the theme for the district’s fourth annual art show, which was bigger than ever this year thanks to grant funding that provided new panels to display student art and a stage for student performances from around the district.

Held at the former Cobalt Middle School’s gymnasium on May 6, the show featured art and performances from Adelanto High School, Cobalt Institute of Math & Science, Goodwill Education Center, Lakeview Leadership Academy, Silverado High School and Victor Valley High School.

The show featured drawings, paintings, photography, sculpture, pottery, mixed media and a variety of musical and dramatic presentations. The Art for Change concept allowed students to explore the theme of social injustice.

“It’s good for the kids to be able to voice their opinion in a creative way,” said Silverado photography teacher Shelly Sears, who co-organized the event with fellow teachers from across the district and VVUHSD administrators.

Sears said a state grant obtained by VVUHSD administrator Dr. McKenzie Tarango was instrumental in obtaining the funding to put on a bigger and better show in the event’s fourth year.
