The Jefferson County Historical Society will host an art walk for all Jefferson County High School art students, promoting their art talents, on Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6. It will take place in the John Steuart Curry Boyhood Home and Museum from 1-4 p.m. on the grounds of Old Jefferson Town in Oskaloosa. Featured will be the students' photography (black and white, color and digital imaging), drawings; acrylics, oils and watercolors; ceramics; sculpture; jewelry and mixed media. Each area high school art department has been invited to participate and exhibit the works of their students.

The Historical Society wants to recognize the quality work in the fine arts of our area students by establishing a county art show, to be scheduled annually, during opening weekend, which is the first weekend of May.
