By WVUA 23 Reporter Samantha Fisher

The Tuscaloosa City School’s annual Superintendent Art Show was held on Friday, Jan. 18.

The Harrison Gallery displayed over 100 pieces of art created by students within Tuscaloosa City School and 20 winners were selected to move forward to state competition.

“I drew the still life of converse because we were learning about still life in art class,” said Juliette Robin, a fifth-grade student at Rocky Quarry Elementary school. “Then I saw Converse (shoes) that I recently bought, and I decided to draw them from different angles.”

Students and teachers came out to support the recipients of these awards being handed out by Tuscaloosa City Schools Superintendent Mike Daria.

“This is an absolutely amazing evening to come and see all of this art from our most talented students in the gallery,” said Daria. “Our school system is so fortunate to support the arts at such high levels and you see that on the walls this evening.”

These 20 students will have their art displayed in the Supreme Court Library at the State Capitol building in February.
