Big River Art Galleries
Student art featured in the Gallery are the winning entries from the Big River Art Contest. Student artists in grades 4-6 use their experiences learning on the Mississippi River and studies in the classroom to create art that is beautiful, whimsical, and informative.
The Big River Journey Art Contest artwork is judged in four categories:
In each category there are four winners, including a grand prize winner. Occasionally, there may also be honorable mentions. The Big River Art Contest occurs annually, with entries due and winners chosen near to the end of the school year. Contest and eligibility rules are found on our website.
Winning artwork from last year's contest is currently on display at the Mississippi River Visitor Center in the Science Museum of Minnesota, 120 West Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul. Winning artwork from previous years is displayed at other visitor centers throughout the park. Call Brian Goodspeed, 651-293-8414 (or e-mail him) for more information.
