Altrusa holds the 49th Annual Art Show for Middle and High Schoolers

The Grand Junction Altrusa Club sponsored the Middle School and High School Art show for 2012. This happens to be the 49th year that Altrusa and the Western Colorado Center for the
Arts have held this show. Both organizations know how important art is to the learning process in every course and in every school. Thank you, Altrusa and thank you, Art Center.
