Murray City holds an annual exhibition of art created by secondary education art students either residing or attending schools within Murray City boundaries. This competition is generally held in April or May and is open to students grades 7-12. Divisions include junior high grades 7-9 and high school grades 10-12 in the categories of graphics, painting, photography, and ceramics.
Artwork must have been completed in the last two years and is not eligible if it has won an award in a previous Murray City exhibit. Ribbons are given to the junior high students with cash prizes awarded to high school 1st place winners. Entry forms and complete rules are available in March at the Murray Parks & Recreation office or from local art teachers.
