The Englewood City Council meeting saw a packed house, but this time, it wasn’t a contentious political issue that drew the crowd.
The audience, largely made up of parents and students, watched a ceremony to honor the top finalists whose artwork was featured in the 2019 City of Englewood calendar.
On Dec. 3, Councilmember Amy Martinez, a former chair of the Cultural Arts Commission, addressed the audience at the start of the meeting, and the top finalists posed one by one for photos.
The Student Art Contest for the 2019 calendar was open to students who live or attend school in Englewood, and the artwork included in it was selected by Englewood city councilmembers; members of the city’s Cultural Arts Commission; Tim Vacca, director of programs at the Museum of Outdoor Arts; and Chris Shaw, graphic designer with the city’s Communications Department, according to the calendar.
The top 50 finalists in the contest were featured in an art exhibit hosted by the museum, and the top 13 are showcased in the city calendar, with full-page spreads. Art by the other finalists in the top 50 are also featured throughout the calendar in small groups.
