5th Annual Highlights


We hope you enjoy this celebration of 2023’s selected artists in the virtual gallery below!

“It was truly an honor to receive so many amazing works of art from students across the country for the 5th Annual Art Contest. I loved getting to read what each artist loved about the Turnagain arm and see that reflected in their artwork. I hope that you will commend each of the selected artist on their amazing creations celebrating the Turnagain Arm.”
