Music in Pictures Art Exhibit on Display Through May

March 10, 2013 by SoWal Staff

Congratulations to Walton County school students and teachers who recently participated in the Second Annual Music in Pictures art contest.  Around 1,300 students from 14 Walton County schools listened to and visually interpreted musical selections from Carnival of the Animals by French composer Camille Saint-Saens. Students were asked to interpret one or more of the selections in a piece of artwork. This adventure produced many creative interpretations of: The Royal March of the Lion, The Aviary, The Aquarium, The Kangaroo, The Elephant and The Swan.

Through a juried competition, awards were given to 12 grand prize winners and awards of recognition went to over 300 students. Grand prize winners were recognized at a ceremony and classical music concert at Rosemary Beach Town Hall held on March 3.

All 329 awarded works of art will be on display through May. Currently, the exhibit is distributed in several locations in Rosemary Beach, Carillon Beach, Redfish Village and Sandestin through the month of March.

  • Amavida Rosemary Beach
