Winston-Salem, NC (March 2, 2022) – Students from across Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools will showcase student art at the Modern Automotive Spring Arts Extravaganza March 15 through March 19 at Arts Council’s Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts.

“Arts Council believes that access and integration of the arts within our schools is vital for the success of our community,” said Chase Law, President and CEO of Arts Council. “We thank Modern Automotive, WS/FCS, and Sawtooth School for Visual Art for helping to bring this vision to life through the Modern Automotive Spring Arts Extravaganza.”


The show will feature three divisions -- Elementary, Middle School and High School – and will award prizes for each division. A reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, March 18 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
